Authorities: Dogs that killed Michigan jogger are euthanized; court hearings planned

Authorities say two dogs that fatally mauled a Michigan jogger last month have been euthanized.

Lapeer County assistant prosecutor Michael Hodges tells The Flint Journal (http://bit.ly/1kGJHWA ) the two cane corsos involved in the July 23 attack on 46-year-old Craig Sytsma of Livonia in Metamora Township were euthanized on Monday.

Hodges says another adult cane corso that wasn't involved in the attack about 45 miles northwest of Detroit was euthanized on Friday.

Valbona Lucaj and husband Sebastiano Quagliata were charged last week with second-degree murder in the attack. On Friday, the same day they were in court, they agreed to give up ownership of the animals and have them euthanized.

Eight puppies will be offered to an animal rescue group. Court hearings in the case are planned this week.
