$3.5 million settlement in Ohio woman's dog mauling death



DAYTON, Ohio — A report says a $3.5 million settlement has been reached in the case of a Dayton woman fatally mauled by her neighbor's dogs. Fifty-seven-year-old Klonda Richey died on Feb. 7, 2014 after the attack by two Cane Corso mastiffs. Police shot and killed both dogs when they attacked responding officers. The Dayton Daily News reports Richey's estate and attorneys will receive $3.5 million after Montgomery County Commissioners give final approval next week. The settlement ends a lawsuit brought against the county and its former dog warden. The dogs' owners were found guilty of two counts of failure to control the animals.
