RICHMOND, Va. -- Not all of the relatives of the 32 people slain at Virginia Tech want the panel that reviewed the massacre reconvened, Gov. Tim Kaine said.

On his monthly radio show on Richmond's WRVA radio, Kaine said that volunteer panel members who want to get involved again may, but he can't order them back to work.

After missing mental health records of student gunman Seung-Hui Cho were uncovered recently, some relatives of the slain and wounded called on Kaine to reconvene the entire panel.

But Kaine said he's heard from other relatives who say they can't go through the ordeal again.
