(UNDATED) - The number of child deaths caused by neglect or abuse is holding steady across the state. That's according to a report from the Indiana Department of Child Services.

The fiscal year before, 54 Indiana children had died from the same causes.

The report also revealed at least 22 of the 53 child-abuse and neglect deaths in the state last year were preventable.
