State: Multiple steps taken after 2012 child death

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (AP) -- The state says it's taking multiple steps to ensure the safety of children following reviews in the wake of the 2012 stabbing death of an 8-year-old girl by her mother.
The Department of Human Services on Tuesday issued a review of its actions since the death of Tameria Greene. Her mother was sentenced in April to at least 23 years in prison. A court had refused to remove the child from the home despite allegations of abuse.
The department says it reviewed cases in Wayne County; fired two employees in contact with the girl and her family; boosted training; and worked to improve collaboration between prosecutors, police and the courts. Other actions are taking place statewide.
Semeria Greene pleaded guilty to second-degree murder. Her maximum prison stay is 50 years.
