JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A third suspect in a Jackson County dog fighting investigation turned himself in Tuesday morning, and Wednesday some of them are due in court - but not for a criminal matter.

Christopher Eugene Allen, 31 of Scottsboro, turned himself into authorities Tuesday morning. He was booked on charges of dog fighting and receiving stolen property dealing with an ATV in the case.

James Allen and Richard Humphrey have also been charged in the case with dog fighting.

Approximately 10 pit bulls were taken from the property in Hollywood earlier this month.

The dogs are now at the Scottsboro Animal Shelter where they're being cared for by the staff.

Meanwhile, the district attorney recently filed a civil suit against Christopher Allen and James Allen.

He's asking a judge to order each man to pay an initial $1500 for care of the dogs then $1000 each monthly until the case is resolved.

That hearing is set for 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.

Christopher Allen, meanwhile, is being held without bond.
