DILLON COUNTY SC - 2006 - EMANUELVILLE COMMUNITY - MAN CONVICTED AND SERVING TIME FOR LETTING HIS PIT BULL MIXES RUN LOOSE AND EAT 10-YEAR-OLD JOHN MATTHEW DAVIS ALIVE HAS HAD HIS VERDICT OVERTURNED

WITNESSES  HEARD THE DOGS WHINING, BARKING AND FIGHTING AND LOOKED TO SEE WHAT APPEARED TO BE A   *** PIECE OF MEAT***  THE BOY'S EYES, NOSE, AND ALL THE SOFT TISSUE AROUND HIS FACE WERE EATEN AWAY. HIS JUGULAR WAS SHREDDED. THE  ***PIECE OF MEAT*** WAS COVERED IN DIRT WHERE IT HAD BEEN PULLED AND DRAGGED......THE CHILD WAS SIMPLY WALKING DOWN THE STREET GOING HOME.

Thursday - Feb 16, 2012 - VERDICT OVERTURNED IN DILLON COUNTY FATAL DOG ATTACK - Bentley Collins was convicted Jan. 30, 2009, by a Dillon County jury of one count of involuntary manslaughter and three counts of owning a dangerous animal in connection with the death of  John Matthew Davis. Matthew was found dead by his mother Nov. 3, 2006, after   6 DOGS  attacked him in the driveway of Collins'  residence.  in the Emanuelville community in Dillon County.

 ****************************************  
COLLINS IS SERVING A FIVE-YEAR SENTENCE IN THE CASE.
HE ALSO WAS REQUIRED TO PAY FOR THE BOY'S FUNERAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*****************************************
IN THEIR OPINION TO OVERTURN THE JURY'S VERDICT AT THE TRIAL COURT LEVEL, THE APPELLATE JUDGES WROTE THAT CIRCUIT COURT JUDGE PAUL BURCH ERRED WHEN HE ALLOWED 10 PRE-AUTOPSY PHOTOS OF THE CHILD'S PARTIALLY EATEN BODY TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO JURORS.

"BECAUSE WE FIND THE TRIAL COURT ABUSED ITS DISCRETION IN ADMITTING THE PHOTOS, WE REVERSE AND REMAND FOR A NEW TRIAL,"  WROTE CHIEF JUDGE JOHN C. FEW IN THE MAJORITY OPINION. JUDGES PAULA H. THOMAS AND APHRODITE K. KONDUROS CONCURRED WITH THE OPINION.

THE ISSUES OF THE PRE-AUTOPSY PHOTOS WAS RAISED AT THE ORIGINAL TRIAL.  THE PROSECUTION ARGUED THEN THAT THE PROBATIVE VALUE OF THE PHOTOS WAS PRIMARILY TO ESTABLISH THAT THE DOGS' ATTACK ON THE BOY WAS UNPROVOKED.

THE STATE'S THEORY WAS THAT COLLINS UNDERFED THE DOGS AND BECAUSE THEY WERE HUNGRY THEY BECAME AGGRESSIVE.  THEREFORE, SAID PROSECUTION COUNSEL,  THE PHOTOS WERE NEEDED BY THE PATHOLOGIST TO SHOW THAT THE DOGS ACTUALLY ATE THE BOY,  AND TO CORROBORATE THE TESTIMONY OF THE DOG BEHAVIOR EXPERT CALLED BY THE STATE.
__________________________________________________

January 26, 2009 - Testimony began after opening arguments Tuesday morning in the case of a Dillon County man charged in a dog mauling that killed a 10-year-old boy more than 2 years ago.

Matthew was found dead by his mother, Caroline Davis, on Nov 3, 2006.  She cried while testifying this  morning stating that Matthew was torn to pieces. He was eaten alive.

The boy's body was so badly mutilated that Dr. Edward Proctor stopped the autopsy so he could go home and get a camera to document the case.

******************************************
THE PHOTOGRAPHS HE SHOWED THE JURY WERE SO DISTURBING THAT ONE FEMALE JUROR BECAME VISIBLY SHAKEN AND BEGAN TO CRY AND A BRIEF RECESS WAS CALLED.

*******************************************

State Law Enforcement Division agent Vicki Hallman responded to the scene the night of Matthew's death.  She told the court she saw 6 dogs on the porch of the home with no food or water..............That night deputies knocked on Collins' door and it appeared no one was home...so deputies left a note ....Collins talked  with deputies later and told them:

****HE'D BEEN RIDING AROUND IN CHARLESTON IN A PICKUP TRUCK WITH A FRIEND*****
