Grandparents may gain custody of McGrew children following attack

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Officials with the Department of Social Services say two children who were living in the home of Quintin and Chantel McGrew may be placed in the care of the children's grandparents  following a recent reported dog attack.

DSS spokesperson Marilyn Matheus confirmed the children had been taken from the home and are in protective custody. Matheus said the grandparents are being looked at for possible placement for the two children.

The news comes after a DSS employee filed a report with the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office on Jan. 3 after noticing dog bites on one of the children's faces. According to the report, the incident happened at the McGrews' home on Jennifer Drive in Ladson.

Authorities are investigating the incident and no charges have been filed as of yet. Investigators say the child did not have to get medical attention for the bite.

Last April, the McGrews' youngest child, Aiden, was killed after being mauled by a dog inside the family's Ridgeville home while Quintin McGrew was asleep in another room.

Quintin McGrew was charged with unlawful conduct towards a child, and is still awaiting trial.
