A Concord man was convicted Friday in the mauling death of his two-year old step-grandson by three family pit bulls.

Steven Hayashi, 55, was found guilty of felony child endangerment, involuntary manslaughter and owning vicious animals.

Fiday's conviction comes four years after two-year old Jacob Bisbee was mauled to death. Prosecutors say Hayashi had ignored pleas from his family to remove the dogs which had previously killed a pet chihuahua.

Hayashi faces up to 10 years in prison.
