Murder suspect pleads not guilty- cadaver dog evidence could prove otherwise

Local News

DURANGO, Colo. — 57-year-old Mark Redwine has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder, and child abuse resulting in death.

The judge in the case says he’ll allow testimony in the September trial, by handlers of dogs trained to detect human remains.

Prosecutors say they plan to provide evidence from two handlers, that Mark Redwine had the body of his son Dylan on his property.

One of the handlers says her dog detected remains in the defendant’s home, about a year after Dylan Redwine disappeared in 2012.

Although, an expert for the defense has testified that dogs can be unreliable and removed remains should not be detectable after one week.
