KC man charged in multiple-state dog fighting case

Missouri prosecutors accuse him of keeping dogs with the intent of using them to fight.

New charges have been filed against a Kansas City man as part of a multiple-state dog fighting ring disrupted earlier this year.

Prosecutors in Henry County, Mo., said Friday that John P. Dulley Jr. has been charged with 12 felony counts of keeping dogs with the intent to fight. The dogs were seized in March as part of the investigation, which included the arrests of suspects in Kansas and Texas and the seizure of dozens of animals.

Two Kansas City, Kan., men have pleaded guilty to federal charges in the case and are scheduled to be sentenced in September.
