The Baltimore Sun recently reported that Travers and Tremayne Johnson, two teenagers who set a pit bull on fire, were scheduled to go to trial on animal cruelty charges Friday.  You probably remember the news coverage and public outrage about the treatment of Phoenix the pit bill, and the circumstances surrounding the case — the twins housed pit bulls in a vacant home located at 1616 N. Gilmor Street in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood.

Travers Johnson was also charged with several felonies, including attempted murder, stemming from an unrelated fight in the same neighborhood.  He is currently being held at the Baltimore City Jail.
