Killer gets dog bite settlement
COLUMBUS, OHIO- A convict serving time for murder who had his nose partially bitten off by a dog in a prison program got $7,500 in a settlement with the State of Ohio.
Vincent Doan's damage award was approved in the Ohio Court of Claims. Doan claimed the attack two years ago left him disfigured and he has nerve damage and a hole in his cheek.
The dog was part of a state prison adopt-a-dog program and he says he didn't provoke the animal that authorities knew was vicious. The state admits no wrongdoing.
Doan is serving a life term for murdering his girlfriend who's body has never been found.
