Man Accused of Hiding Dogs Wanted in Mauling

From Times Wire Reports

A home health care nurse whose three pit bulls chewed off a 10-year-old boy's face and ears was arraigned on two misdemeanor charges for allegedly concealing the dogs after the attack.

Benjamin Moore, 27, pleaded not guilty and is being held on $50,000 bail. Moore said he fled with his dogs Monday evening because he thought the boy was dead.

Now two of the dogs are missing, and Shawn Jones is in critical condition after enduring surgery that doctors say will take years to complete. He's also suffering through painful rabies shots because the dogs can't be found and tested.
