Mass. group home worker’s family seeking report


The family of a Massachusetts woman allegedly killed by a resident of a group home has asked a judge to order the release of a new report on the killing. Stephanie Moulton of Peabody was a case worker at the group home where Deshawn Chappell had been placed when Moulton was fatally stabbed in January 2011. Chappell was charged in her killing. The Salem News reported that Moulton’s parents want access to what they believe is a Department of Mental Health report to use in a lawsuit they have filed against the state and directors of the private agency that ran the group home.
