PANAMA CITY, Fla. (AP) -- A Florida Panhandle man whose dogs fatally mauled a 7-year-old neighbor boy has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
A Bay County judge sentenced Edward Daniels Jr. on Friday. He was convicted in August of manslaughter.
Prosecutors claimed Daniels neglected to contain his dogs on the day they got loose. The News Herald of Panama City (http://goo.gl/qn79re) reports that Tyler Jett died in April, a week after he was attacked by two dogs while riding his bicycle.
Daniels was found not guilty on a tampering with evidence charge. He testified that he didn't know what had happened when he washed the blood off the dogs the day of the attack.
