LINCOLN PARK, Mich. (AP) — A medical examiner says a 5-year-old Detroit area boy was missing body parts after he was mauled to death last year by a wolf-dog hybrid.
The Detroit News reports (http://bit.ly/om1FRA ) that Wayne County medical examiner Carl Schmidt testified Friday in a Lincoln Park courtroom that part of one of Kyle Holland's thigh bones and much of the soft tissue on the thigh were missing at the time of his autopsy.
His chest cavity also was crushed and the boy had more than 80 puncture wounds.
The testimony came during the preliminary examination for the boy's mother, Debbralyn Holland, and Earl Adkins.
Holland is charged with involuntary manslaughter and second-degree child abuse. Adkins is charged with dangerous animal death.
Adkins and Debbralyn Holland lived together at the time of the attack
