Jury deliberates fate of mother whose baby was mauled to death by dogs


ELIZABETHTOWN, NC (WWAY) -- A 12 person jury is set to return to court Wednesday in Bladen County to determine the fate of a 19-year-old accused of involuntary manslaughter after her 9-day-old baby was mauled to death by dogs in 2011.

Prosecutors say Chelsea Brigman left the baby alone with a number of dogs. Brigman has been in court since last week. In a note to the judge, the jury said they were split nine to three but did not indicate which direction they were divided.

District Attorney Jon David says a special Grand Jury was called for this case. Now, they must determine if the baby's death was an accident or if Brigman played a role. The judge says deliberation will begin tomorrow at 9:30 a.m.

If she's guilty

give her the same fate. No defensive mechanisms. Limited mobility. No place to run; no ability to run.

Nice Tom

Mistrial declared case dropped no further pursuit by prosecutors.

And you were ready to throw her to the dogs.
Perhaps they should charge the men in this case.....


That's pretty sick, Tommy

That's pretty sick, Tommy Boy.

Par for the course...

...when it comes to this sour old fa*t with nothing better to do slap people around on a public blog. He's a big, brave easychair polisher that calls everyone that doesn't agree with him a "weasel".
