Indicted for manslaughter

Just a quick note for that rare individual who hasn't heard: Michael Gordon has been charged with manslaughter for the mauling death of Makayla Woodard. The Enquirer-Journal has the story.
The owner of two pit bulls that mauled a Waxhaw child in January was indicted on charges of involuntary manslaughter.

Michael Gordon, 23, of 316 Rehobeth Road, was indicted by a grand jury March 7, according to court documents.

On Jan. 12, Gordon’s pit bulls attacked 5-year-old Makayla Woodard of 324 Rehobeth Road. The dogs also attacked the girl’s 67-year-old grandmother, Nancy Presson, who tried to rescue the child.
