(Cedar City-AP) -- The group home in Cedar City that shut down after a counselor was beaten and killed could reopen.

Operators of the Maximum Life Skills Academy have applied for a new license for another site.

The youth home closed in March after a group counselor was beaten to death with a bat. Two teens from the home face capital homicide charges in his death.

The state revoked the home's license for numerous violations including having only one counselor on staff at the time of the beating.

Cedar City officials are concerned about reopening the home at another site. But licensing officials say the new application shows the director running the program when the counselor was killed will not be a part of the new program. And they say the license could be granted if all cited problems are corrected.
