Dog owner charged with murder in mauling death of nine-year-old girlPierre Cleveland, 33, was arrested and charged on Thursday with involuntary manslaughter and having dangerous animals, as well as the murder charge, several media outlets, including the Detroit Free Press, reported. The child, Emma Hernandez, 9, was riding her bicycle near her home in Detroit on Monday, the last day of summer vacation, when she was attacked and killed by the dogs despite efforts by neighbors to save her. Cleveland’s Detroit home is across the street from where the child lived, and news media reported that neighbors had long complained to the city about his dogs running loose through a broken fence.
