ALEXANDER, AR - A team reviewing the recent death of 17-year-old LaKeisha Brown of Osceola, a resident of the Alexander Youth Services Center, says nurses who were in charge of Brown's care when she died should be suspended and the center should be held accountable for not ensuring proper care for the girl.

The state center is managed by Cornell Companies.
