Man Convicted Of Murder Because His Pitbulls Killed Woman
The behavior of the California man’s four pit bulls resulted in a second degree murder conviction for him.
A jury found Alex Donald Jackson, 31, guilty of murder Friday after Pamela Devitt was killed by his four pit bulls during her morning walk on May 9, 2013.
The Littlerock woman was bitten 200 times, according to the coroner’s office. She died from blood loss. Some of the bites were so deep that bone was exposed, New York Daily News reported.[su_sky_ad]
Residents in the Antelope Valley town told the Los Angeles Times that they were often confronted by a pack of dogs. Some took to carrying sticks, rocks and guns when they were outside. Parents forbid their children from playing outdoors.
Prosecutors argued that Jackson was negligent and knew that his dog’s endangered the lives of others. The dogs were allegedly involved in at least seven other fights in the 18 months leading up to the mauling.
