Florida dog owner found guilty in boy's fatal mauling

Jurors have found a Florida Panhandle man guilty of manslaughter after his 7-year-old neighbor was mauled by his dogs.

It took the jury about two hours Thursday to return the verdict against Edward Daniels.

The News Herald of Panama City reports jurors found that Daniels neglected to contain his dogs on the day they got loose. He was found not guilty of tampering with evidence for washing blood from one of the dogs after the attack.

Daniels testified he didn't know what had happened when he washed the blood off that day.

Tyler Jett died in April, a week after he was attacked by two dogs while riding his bicycle.

Daniels, who has no previous criminal history, faces 15 years in prison when he's sentenced on Oct. 14.
