OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Oklahoma Department of Human Services, the Department of Corrections and the University of Oklahoma Medical Center have agreed to settle a lawsuit in the death of a young girl known as Precious Doe.

Larry Green sued the agencies for the 2001 death of his daughter _ Erica Green _whose beheaded body was found in Kansas City, Mo. Erica was known as Precious Doe until identified in 2005.

Her mother and stepfather _ Michelle Johnson and Harrell Johnson _ were convicted in her death. Michelle Johnson is serving 25 years in prison and Harrell Johnson is serving life without parole.

Green will receive an unspecified payment in the settlement and the agencies will develop procedures for DHS to find safe homes for babies born to mothers who are in prison.
