NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — In a story July 1 about drug charges against a man whose dogs mauled a Connecticut woman to death, The Associated Press erroneously reported the man’s role at Yale Medical School. The man is a psychiatry resident, not a professor.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Yale med school resident faces drug charges after dog attack
A Yale Medical School resident psychiatrist whose dogs mauled a Connecticut woman to death is facing drug charges
NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A resident psychiatrist with Yale Medical School whose dogs mauled a Connecticut woman to death is facing drug charges.
WTNH-TV reports (http://bit.ly/297G0c0) Hamilton Hicks was initially scheduled to be in a New Haven court on Friday but the case was continued until July 15. Police say he had three bags of crack cocaine in his possession during the June 20 dog attack, which killed Jocelyn Winfrey.
Hicks wasn’t charged in the dog attack. Police say they’ve closed their investigation and the dogs were properly registered and vaccinated.
Winfrey had been visiting Hicks’ home when the dogs attacked. Hicks tried unsuccessfully to pull the dogs off her. She later succumbed to her injuries.
WTNH-TV says the dogs will be euthanized next week. Hicks and Yale Medical School haven’t commented.
