Children Killed With Baseball Bat, CT Company Investigated

A Connecticut company is being investigated after a man attacked two children in an Arizona park and killed them, authorities said.

An investigation by health officials in Arizona shows the Maricopa Clinic-West Camelback in Glendale failed to properly document consent for medication, update patient assessments and develop patient-treatment plans, the Arizona Republic reports.

Arizona health officials are raising questions about operations at the mental health clinic, which is run by Avon-based Magellan Health Services.

The clinic was investigated three days after a man attacked two young cousins with a baseball bat last month at a park in Phoenix. The cousins, 7 and 10, died from their injuries.

Arizona officials could not confirm whether the man charged in the attacks was treated at the clinic, but initial police statements indicate he was treated by a mobile crisis response team that contracts with Magellan under a state contract.

A Magellan a company spokesman said he was not prepared to comment on the matter.
