DETROIT (AP) - A key court hearing has been postponed after a man who lost a lower leg in a Detroit dog attack couldn’t make it because of his condition.

Steve Constantine is being transferred to his sister’s home from a rehabilitation center. He lost most of his left arm, his left leg below the knee and his left ear in the October attack.

A judge must decide whether there’s enough evidence to send Derrick Felton to trial. He’s charged with harboring a dangerous animal causing serious injury. Judge Ron Giles refused to dismiss the case and set another hearing for April 8. Other witnesses also had conflicts Monday.

Police killed one dog at the scene and rounded up at least 11 others.
