A Cedarville couple has back at home two of the five children taken away after four other children died in a three-month span.

"Both expressed a desire to return home," said Greene County Juvenile Court Referee Robert Hutcheson. After a 20-minute conversation with Hosea Carroll, 9, and James, 16, and a hearing on Thursday, Hutcheson on Friday recommended that those two boys go back home to their adoptive parents, Kathleen and Timothy Carroll.

Juvenile Judge Robert Hagler agreed with Hutcheson's recommendation.

"The court concludes that James and Hosea are normal, healthy children who are not at risk in their parents' home," he said.

However, an order allowing Greene County Children Services to check on the children at any time remains in force, Hagler said.

Samuel, 4, a Down syndrome child, is in a foster home; his adoptive brothers who have physical handicaps, Isaiah, 10, and Josiah, 11, are in another.

The court has set a hearing for Dec. 22 to determine whether any of the Carroll children have been abused or neglected.

The Carrolls adopted 10 children, most of whom are handicapped.

Four of the children died between Sept. 21 and last Wednesday, arousing concerns among Greene County officials that the children weren't being given adequate care or supervision.
