A Chester County couple charged with running a dog fighting ring is being held for trial.

Shane Santiago and Laura Acampora attended a preliminary hearing Friday.

Last month, detectives found a blood-spattered arena in their West Brandywine home.

Investigators say pit bulls who failed to perform were burned alive and hung.

Five children lived in the home.

Santiago and Acampora are charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty and child endangerment.
