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.
