Rifqa Bary Back in Ohio, in State Custody

Ad Feedback

Rifqa Bary is back in Ohio after spending three months in Florida.

The move on Tuesday officially ended Florida's emergency jurisdiction in Bary's case.

The 17-year-old is now the responsibility of Franklin County Children Services, which is expected to place her in a foster home while the legal battle plays out.

Bary left Ohio last summer when she reached out to strangers she met through a prayer group on the social-networking site Facebook.

Now that she has returned, an Ohio judge has ordered her telephone and Internet use be supervised.

Bary ran away from her parents' Columbus-area home in July in fear of being killed by her parents for converting from Islam to Christianity.

A Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation found no credible threats to the girl.
