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.
