Owner of dogs that killed Kentucky woman charged

A woman has been identified after she was killed when two dogs attacked her and her husband Sunday morning in the Wiser Branch area of Bell County.

Around 10.20am, brother-in-law James Saylor called police to tell them that the two dogs had "savagely" attacked the couple.

42, was arrested and charged with harboring a vicious animal after two of his pitbulls attacked and killed Lorraine Brock Saylor, 66, in Kentucky on December 24, 2017.

According to a press release published on Facebook, the husband managed to shoot both dogs, but only one died. Also, the dog which was killed by Johnny will undergo a necropsy. The other dog escaped, and the Bell County Sheriff's Department is now searching for it.

The toddler had entered a fenced enclosure which housed two pit bull dogs when the creatures started attacking him.

Authorities said 42-year-old Johnny Dale Lankford was already behind bars at the Bell County Detention Center for a different incident that saw him charged with Second Degree Assault, domestic violence and unlawful imprisonment on a $25,000 bond. "Under no circumstances are you to engage this risky animal".

Lorraine Saylor was declared dead at the scene.

"She loved animals and every morning she would go out and put wild bird seed out on a metal roof of a little work shed they had there and feed then birds", said Steele.

Two pit bulls mauled one of their neighbors to death on Christmas Eve.

The husband survived and was transported to an area hospital with unspecified injuries.

"They were both active within the community and just, like I said, two of the nicest people you would ever meet".

An autopsy on Saylor is scheduled for this week.
