The owners of a pit bull that attacked a little girl in Jackson county will face a jury. A judge decided Wednesday there is enough evidence to send Brian Nace and his girlfriend, Jasmine Bailey to trial on felony charges of possessing a dangerous animal that caused serious harm.
Six-year-old Tyah Norris was attacked by three pit bulls at Nace's home in Blackman township in late August--- causing serious facial injuries that required more than 500 stitches.
News 10 was there as the judge made the decision Wednesday. We'll have more on this story tonight on at 6pm.

    My heart goes out to the little girl and her painful future. Pitbulls should be made to wear muzzles when outside. You can post a warning sign but that does no good to a child who can't even read it or understand the danger. The owners should go to trial and I would love to be on the jury. Let the punishment fit the crime.

    Pit bulls should be BANNED!!! How many more innocent people need to be hurt before the powers that be will do something about this. They are more dangerous than guns.

    I feel bad for the girl, her parents & the dog's owners. For what it's worth, I believe the owners should be held accountable. Pet owners should know the capability of their pets and make sure they aren't a danger to the public, or aren't in danger from the public. The unfortunate thing is that this child will be scarred both physically and emotionally for a long time. The dogs being "put down" is after the fact and irrelevent. This could have been prevented, but now the damage is done. I love dogs. They are enjoyable and in some cases necessary however, I believe if you can't control, or restrain your pets, you shouldn't have them.
