DETROIT (AP) - A trial date has been set for a man charged in a Detroit dog attack in which another man lost half of one leg and much of one arm.

Derick Felton is charged with harboring a dangerous animal causing serious injury. A pretrial hearing is June 26 and trial is set for Sept. 8 in Wayne County Circuit Court.

Steve Constantine says he was trying to feed Felton’s pit bulls in October when he was mauled. Constantine lost most of his left arm, his left leg below the knee and his left ear.

Police killed one dog at the scene and rounded up at least 11 others. Felton’s lawyer has said the dogs that police rounded up belonged to him, but they weren’t the dogs that attacked Constantine.
