Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Records show violence continues in Ohio's juvenile prison system in the year after the state settled a federal lawsuit that alleged widespread problems.
Records examined by the Associated Press show guards have used unauthorized restraints and inmates have frequently attacked each other and officers since last May.
In one case, a gang-related fight involving 41 youth broke out in the Marion facility.
In six incidents, youths on parole were accused of committing homicides.
Authorities are also investigating the death of a guard on duty in a detention center near Cleveland last month.
Ohio agreed to make widespread changes following the 2004 lawsuit that uncovered evidence of a culture of violence permeating Ohio's seven juvenile correctional facilities.
