A murder trial is underway for a Detroit man who's dogs mauled a four year old boy to death. Geneke Lyons is charged with second degree murder.

On Thursday prosecutors showed jurors the video of Xavier Strickland being attacked by four pitbulls last December.

Authorities say he was bitten about ninety times. Police had to shoot and kill three of the dogs in order to free his body; another was euthanized.

The trial is expected to take less than a week.
