A Miami-Dade County grand jury has released its final report in the disturbing Barahona child abuse and murder case.
The public and the news media will be kept out of the dependency court hearings for the three surviving adopted children of Jorge and Carmen Barahona, the Miami-Dade couple accused of fatally abusing one of their children.
An appeal filed by a former DCF child abuse investigator involved in the Barahona case was dismissed. Andrea Fleary filed the appeal after she was fired and claimed that her dismissal was inappropriate because she made no mistakes in her investigation.
The public defender tasked with defending Jorge Barahona asked a judge to be withdrawn from the case.
