Allegations Of Abuse Surface In State-Run Facilities, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, people with disabilities are being abused in state-run facilities, and lawmakers want answers from the state health department. Amelia Knisely has the story.

Also, in this show, Mercer County leaders have repurposed 23 acres of woodland once used for forestry research into a recreational area. And its two miles of trails offer more than hiking. They also have a lot of history and learning opportunities. Jessica Lilly takes us there in this report.
