FRANKFORT, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A panel appointed by Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear to review child abuse and neglect cases in the commonwealth is expected to release its first report later in 2013.

The Child Fatality and Near Fatality External Review Panel began meeting in the November of 2012 after Beshear created it through an executive order.

The panel is required to issue an annual report that includes suggestions for changes that could improve child welfare in the commonwealth.

The panel's chairman says he expects to have a draft report done in September and a final report will be issued in December.
