Detroit dog owners charged after fatal mauling

Roy and Trevina Goodman

The owners of three dogs that mauled a Detroit man to death earlier this year are now facing charges.

Roy Eric Goodman, 40, and Trevina Quiche Goodman, 38, are charged with dangerous animal causing death stemming from the Jan. 29 attack of Harold Phillips, who died Feb. 2.

Phillips was walking home from a bus stop in the area of West Chicago and Longacre when the dogs escaped through an unsecured gate and mauled him. He suffered severe injuries and was on life support for days before dying. 


'I’m heartbroken': Detroit father of 6 mauled by dogs, family asks for help

Harold Phillips of Detroit is on life support after being attacked by three dogs Monday night. His family is asking for help.

After the attack, the dogs were taken by Detroit Animal Care and Control.

"This is heartbreaking. I just do not understand why we continue to see unleashed and unsecured dangerous dogs running loose and killing our citizenry. With pet ownership comes responsibility, pure and simple. I do not see what is hard to understand about that," said Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

Roy Goodman was arraigned Wednesday. His wife was arraigned Thursday.
