ABILENE, Texas (AP) - Two people face second-degree felony charges in the dog-mauling death of a 7-year-old Breckenridge child who was killed by their pit bulls.
The Stephens County Sheriff's Office arrested 45-year-old Jack Smith and 27-year-old Crystal Watson. They each face a felony charge of a dog attack resulting in a death, which is punishable by 20 years in prison and a maximum $10,000 fine.
Bail for each person was set at $250,000 each. Both remain in custody. Seven-year-old Tanner Joshua Monk of Breckenridge died May 18 after he was attacked by pit bulls while playing outside near his rural home.
