      Dogs that killed Michigan man will be euthanized

      A couple charged with second-degree murder after their dogs fatally mauled a Michigan jogger have agreed to have the animals euthanized.

      Valbona Lucaj and husband Sebastiano Quagliata signed the agreement with prosecutors Friday, the same day they appeared in court on charges related to the death of Craig Sytsma of Livonia.

      He was attacked by two cane corsos on July 23 in Metamora Township, 45 miles northwest of Detroit. The agreement says the dogs and a third cane corso will be killed as soon as possible.

      The dogs have been in custody along with eight puppies. The puppies will be offered to an animal rescue group.

      Bond was set at $500,000 each for the 44-year-old Lucaj and 45-year-old Quagliata.
