Dog Mauling Update Expected
Sheriff's office cannot confirm warrants or charges.
SUMMERVILLE — Dorchester County Sheriff's Office will have an update Wednesday afternoon regarding the dog mauling that resulted in the death of an infant last month.
While some media outlets are reporting warrants or charges have been issued or the father — who was allegedly asleep at the time of the incident — will turn himself in, Chief Deputy Sam Richardson would not confirm the information and said it did not come from within his department.
"We expect to have a change in the case," he said. When asked for more information, he said it was "an update."
According to officers, the dog is still in quarantine. Days after the incident, the infant's death was ruled homicide by the Dorchester County coroner.
