____________________________________________________________

A three-day jury trial for a Benton County man accused of two counts of manslaughter will begin on Tuesday, Feb. 20 in Ashland.
In September 2014, Eric Hodges, 35, of Lamar was arrested and charged with manslaughter by culpable negligence after the death of David Glass, 51.
According to the Benton County Sheriff’s Department, Glass was attacked by three pit bulls owned by Hodges at the intersection of Sexton Road and MS 7 in Lamar. Glass was found approximately four hours after the attack and was able to give Benton County Sheriff Arnie McMullen an account of what happened to him before passing away the next day.
Benton County Circuit Court Clerk Kathy Graves says it was after Glass’ attack that deputies noticed similarities from the death of Derrick Sanders in July 2014 and began a second investigation into Sanders’ death.
The three pit bulls owned by Hodges were ordered to be euthanized in 2014.  
Manslaughter is an offense punishable by imprisonment for not less than two years and not exceeding 20 years.
Hodges’ trial will begin at 9 a.m. at the Benton County courthouse.

Do they even have a leash law there yet? I cannot imagine living next door to these monsters who are running at large. I guess someone notices a problem once people are dead.

I have one other post from Benton County MS from April 1, 2013. Dispicable people have these dispicable mutants chained and penned and running loose and PIT-FIGHTING goes on!!! It's a total lack of empathy for fellow human beings. The human mutants lack the ability to see what these meat grinders are capable of....THEY JUST DON'T CARE!!! IT'S SOMETHING IN THEIR DNA!!!!! On Monday, Feb 19, 2018, at about 6:15pm our front door was almost kicked in. My 77 year old husband was frozen and I took my 72 year old body as fast as I could to find out who was trying to get in my front door...HUGE PIT BULLS NEXT DOOR WERE BARKING LIKE CRAZY..I screamed at 2 men trying to get in my door and they finally said they were DECATUR POLICE AND MORGAN CO SHERIFF AND I OPENED THE DOOR AND THERE WAS 8 POLICE VEHICLES OF ALL KINDS IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE. I BEGAN SCREAMING YOU'VE GOT THE WRONG HOUSE GO NEXT DOOR TO THE DRUG DEALERS - THEY LEFT WITHOUT EVEN AN APOLOGY - THERE HAD BEEN A JAIL ESCAPE AT 7:30AM AND ONE OF THE OWNERS OF THE HUGE PITS WHO WAS SERVING TIME FOR PAROLE VIOLATION FROM A HOME INVASION AND ROBBERY in June 2013 WITH A GUN HAD ESCAPED AND THEY DID NOT EVEN KNOW HE WAS MISSING UNTIL DARK. LOOK IT UP - MAN ESCAPES FROM JAIL DECATUR AL MORGAN COUNTY JAIL. I WANT TO KNOW WHO IS TAKING CARE OF HIS 7 KIDS? IT'S IN THEIR DNA.

THERE WERE POLICE AND SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES EVERYWHERE. THEY ACTUALLY CLIMBED OVER THE TRASH AND FALLEN BUSHES BETWEEN OUR HOUSES THAT THE NUTTERS WANT CLEAN UP AND WERE AT THERE GATE THE 3 OR 4 XXL PITS GROWLED AND BARKED LIKE OUT A HORROR MOVIE. WE COULD SEE FLASH LIGHTS EVERYWHERE LOOKING THROUGH OLD BROKE CARS THAT HAVE BEEN IN THE DRIVE WAY FOR YEARS. ABOUT 6:30 IT ALL STOPPED AND THEY GATHERED AROUND THE LEAD POLICE VEHICLES IN FRONT OF OUR HOUSE AND LAUGHED AND TALKED...THEY DID NOT FIND THE ESCAPEE OR HIS GIRL FRIEND WHO EVIDENTLY HELPED HIM ESCAPE AND THE MOTHER OF HIS LAST 3 CHILDREN. WE WERE LEFT SITTING HERE AFRAID TO GO OUT OF OUR HOUSE. IF I STOP POSTING ON MY BLOG AND NO ONE HEARS FROM ME OR MY HUSBAND FOR A WHILE, NOTIFY THE DECATUR POLICE AND THE MORGAN COUNTY SHERIFF ... WE MAY BE ON THE GROUND WITH A BULLET THROUGH OUR HEAD ON OUR OWN PROPERTY!!!!!

Decatur, I hope you're doing okay. Let us know in the comments. Frightened for you, wish I could transport you out of that place.

On 26 Nov 2017 about 5pm we are startled by an abrupt banging on our front door. I go to window and peek and a large man is there and there is a large truck in front of our house. I feel frightened and hesitate but because he looks "official like" I ask him through the door "what do you want"? He says that he works for a bondsman and they are looking for a man next door and have we seen him. The nutter was out on a $10,000 bond for violation of probation and fled to an island for several months with his girl friend and three small children. The island was devastated by the hurricane and they had word that he has come home and there is a warrant out for his arrest as "MOST WANTED" in Morgan County. We tell him no we have not seen anyone. He leaves and we now realize that this bounty hunter has put us in even more danger!!! About 30 min later the street is filled with cop cars. THE XXL PIT BULLS BEGIN BARKING AND GROWLING FROM THEIR SMALL PENS. They go in and bring the "MOST WANTED" out. The next day we look up who the bondsmen are in this area and start looking up facebook pages and there are the pictures of the arrest on one of them. So he goes back to jail just to serve out time left..about 1 year.

So I am trying to survive breast cancer and take care of a 77-year-old husband. I don't get much sleep and if I ever fall asleep on my bed, I get woke up by XXL pit bulls howling and barking from the nutters back yard. For about a year in addition to the 3 or 4 XXL pit bulls in the back yard, they have a very large German Shepherd that they bring outside on a long blue leash. They walk it around the perimeter of the front yard and let it shit and pee everywhere spending much of the time walking up and down the line that separates our property from theirs. Sometimes they will tie it to a tree for a while. On the afternoon of 20 Dec 2017 I had gone to get groceries at Walmart a mile from my house. My receipt says 12:48 so I drove up my street and pulled over to my mailbox about 12:55 and realized someone was driving very close to my car so I hit my turn signal to pull into my driveway and then I saw it was "YOUNG HOLLYWOOD" the brother nutter that has many drug-related arrests and is always out on bond and probation??? I pulled up looking at my mail and listening to the radio and suddenly I realized that this drug dealing nut job was waving and shouting at me. He walked down to the property line and was throwing his arms around..one hand on his heart and the other raised in the air..I don't KnoW how to describe it other than to say it appeared he was giving GANG SIGNS WITH HIS OTHER HAND WITH HIS ARM RAISED UP IN THE AIR!!! He was shouting very loud and I looked around and saw no neighbors outside so I hit the alarm on my key chain and got out of the car and ran into the house. I told my husband what had happened and we looked out the front window and there was the Pit Nutter Brother, the one that used to train those smaller pit bulls they had when they first moved there...the pits the Judge told them to get rid of... He had the German Shepherd and was walking it and letting it come across our property line. SO IS THIS RETRIBUTION FOR THE BOUNTY HUNTER COMING TO OUR FRONT DOOR ON SUNDAY NOV 26? So what did he shout at me? We would never know because he speaks in another language even though he was born in the U.S. So now when I make my weekly trip to get groceries or go pay bills, I get in my car inside the garage and lock my doors and always watch to see who is behind my car. We do not stand near a window and all my flowers in my yard can just go ahead and die this year!

Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin said on video on one of the news releases - all 3 tv stations (Huntsville) had "breaking news" on this jail escape for 3 days and now its stopped: whnt, waay, waff, al.com - that when they catch MR. GUN or NUTTER BROTHER #2, HE WILL BE LOOKING AT 20 YEARS....WHEN HELL FREEZES OVER!!!!! THE CITY OF DECATUR AND MORGAN COUNTY ALABAMA WILL NOT PUT A STOP TO THIS MADNESS UNTIL SOMEBODY IS BADLY HURT. THIS CITY IS ON ITS WAY TO BECOMING LITTLE CHICAGO OR BALTIMORE!!! THIS WAS ONE OF THE NICEST SUBDIVISIONS IN DECATUR WHEN WE MOVED TO THIS CITY 23 YEARS AGO. MY HUSBAND WORKED 20 YEARS TO PAY THIS HOUSE OFF. NONE OF THE OTHER NEIGHBORS WILL EVEN LOOK THIS WAY...SO LONG AS ITS NOT NEXT DOOR TO THEM, THEY WILL NOT GET INVOLVED. SO I'M THROUGH FOR TONIGHT AND I DO NOT LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT DRAMA...PITS DRUGS GUNS CRIME....

I hope the escapee gets caught right quick! I am so sorry Decatur, you live in a very terrifying situation. I am hoping that these thugs will leave the house next door soon. I've had terrible neighbors before and most of them have moved on. The most recent next door neighbors had one of their kids die of an overdose in the basement. They were renting, so I called the landlord and the promptly got kicked out. Drugs are everywhere and so are pit bulls. I'd say that you have an extreme case, and I am praying that this will end for you soon!

So Sat night Feb 24 a severe weather front is coming through the midsouth states and there have been tornados. I'm responsible so I've got local radar on my computer and I'm listening. Me and Pop both think we hear the tornado siren and so it is 1:24am so I decide to open my front door and step out 4 steps so I can hear better and observe the sky. There are bright lights from larger cars like SUVs at the nutters house to the left and they can see me. They speed off down the street and I get back in my door frightened. We are at the point that we are afraid to walk out our house to check on the weather!!! So I guess they had learned of the death of the son in Orange County Florida and they were heading out.....MY POINT: WE HAVE NOT SEEN ONE PERSON TENDING TO THOSE XXL PITS IN THAT ROTTING MESS OF A UTILITY BLDG IN 4 DAYS. IT IS VERY QUIET OVER THERE NIGHT AND DAY...EXCEPT WHEN WE OPEN OUR BACK DOOR AND TAKE A STEP OUT...THEN WE ARE BLASTED WITH GROWLING AND BARKING...AND WHEN THEY RETURN FROM FLORIDA I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT THESE DRUG DEALERS WILL BE HAILED AS "VICTIMS" AND "PETTED AND PAMPERED". We tried to use the "see something, say something" rule the authorities tell us to use. We told everybody what we saw and nobody listened. Are the Decatur Police Dept and the Morgan County Sheriff and the OVERDOSED dead man's !!!MOTHER!!! going to take responsibility for this man's death, the father of 7 children, or will the "FAMILY" continue to blame an elderly couple, 77 and 72, that just wanted peace and quiet and the right to pay and live in a relatively nice neighborhood. They used the race card and the "haters of pit bulls" card on us when it is nothing more than DRUGS, GUNS, CRIME AND THE USE OF MUTANT HUGE ANIMALS THAT THEY MANIPULATE THE DNA AND BREED TO BE GUARDS OF ALL THIS!!! We are waiting for the next DRAMA!!!

The nutters were gone almost a week. By the end of the 5th and 6th days they were gone, the PIT BULLS WERE BEGINNING TO BARK LOUDER AND LOUDER. I guess they were in Orlando burying the 29 yr old drug overdosed Morgan County Al jail escapee/drug dealer that, with the help of his girlfriend, the mother of 3 of his 7 children, made it to the Orange County Fl area. SUV's were back over there Fri 2 Mar. It has been a relatively quiet week. Each day I check the arrests in Morgan County on line and today there it is... the other pit-bull-training drug brother was arrested this afternoon on a street in downtown Decatur for Marijuana Poss. 1st - Felony(Less than 2 weeks after his brother died in Orlando of a drug overdose after a jail escape). Other times the charge was Methanfetamine (can't spell) and synthetic marijuana, driving with a revoked license etc. I can't wait to see what color shirt he will have on for the mug shot. There's one with a green shirt, one with a red shirt, one with a tank top, one with a very colorful jacket/hoodie. These drug dealing dudes wear a new pair of bright colored athletic shoes everyday with fancy pants that hang down below their butt holes with gold chains around their neck and earrings hanging out their nose, the side of their lip, their eyebrows. On facebook they will have $100 dollar bills in stacks laying all around them as they hold a gun....AND THEIR PIT BULLS WILL BE STANDING IN A SMALL PEN UP AGAINST A ROTTEN SHACK LOOKING OUT WITH THEIR BEADY EYES BARKING AND GROWLING.

IT'S NOT OVER YET, FOLKS: Well, he wore a blue shirt for this mug shot ... but it looks like neighbors on the other side of town reported his drug operation this time!!! Bail set at $2,500 ... He was in posession of an AK 47 and another hand gun ... His name is not showing up on the Morgan County Inmate list yet ... Chances are he has already made bail. He probably had a gun on him when he came down at me on Dec. 20, 2017. I could feel it in my soul!!!
