INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- An annual report on deaths of Indiana children from abuse and neglect shows that many of those killed in 2011 died at the hands of a parent's boyfriend or girlfriend.
 
The report released Monday by the Department of Child Services found that 25 percent of the 40 deaths reported that year were caused by a parent's "intimate partner." That's lower than in 2010, when more than half of the 25 deaths were caused by a partner.
