Some Charges Dropped against Man Accused of Dog Fighting

Posted: Updated:

The case against a Fluvanna County man accused of dog fighting is moving forward but some of the charges have been dropped.

Brenton Lemont Mathis, 39, faces eight counts for dog fighting activity. During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, 10 animal cruelty charges were dropped.

Last month, Mathis showed NBC29 the area where his 10 dogs were kept before authorities seized them and other items.

A grand jury will decide whether or not Mathis will be indicted.
