      SC judge: jury to decide dog mauling death charges


      ST. GEORGE, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina judge says there's



      enough evidence for a jury to decide charges facing a man whose

      2

      -month-old son was dismembered and killed by the family dog while he slept nearby.


      Magistrate Katrina Patton said Friday that whether 28-year-old



      Quintin McGrew of Ridgeville put the baby at an



      unreasonable risk



      is a question for a jury. McGrew's attorney Andy Savage he's not



      surprised the case will continue.


      McGrew was charged by the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office



      with unlawful conduct toward a child after the April



      death of his



      son Aiden. The boy was mauled by a dog the family had adopted six



      days earlier.


      Savage said the McGrews were being prosecuted because they were



      among those working poor families who didn't



      have a crib in their



      home.
