DETROIT (AP) - The case against a man blamed for a dog attack that left a Detroit man without a lower leg is heading to trial court.

Derick Felton on Wednesday waived a preliminary examination to determine whether there’s enough evidence for trial. The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says he’s scheduled to make his first appearance in Wayne County Circuit Court on April 22.

Steve Constantine lost most of his left arm, his left leg below the knee and his left ear in the October attack. The hearing in the case was initially scheduled last month, but it was postponed in part after Constantine couldn’t make it because of his condition.

Felton is charged with harboring a dangerous animal. Police killed one dog at the scene and rounded up at least 11 others.
