Michigan dog owner may be charged in fatal attack

Updated: Friday, July 25, 2014

METAMORA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - The owner of two dogs that fatally mauled a jogger along a rural Michigan road could be charged.

Authorities in Lapeer County say 46-year-old Craig Sytsma of Livonia was attacked Wednesday by the cane corsos in Metamora Township, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit. Authorities say he died of his injuries at a hospital.

In Michigan, a person may face involuntary manslaughter or other charges in such an attack. The county prosecutor's office is expected to review the case.

The dogs, previously identified as bull mastiffs, are quarantined at the county animal shelter.

Detective Jason Parks says the dogs were brought in the 45-year-old owner. Authorities will seek to have the dogs destroyed.
