Woman mauled by dog dies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A woman attacked by a pit bull earlier this month has died.

WTOK-TV reports Neshoba County Sheriff Tommy Waddell says 61-year-old Connie Storey died Wednesday at a hospital in Jackson, 12 days after the attack.

Waddell says Storey was mauled by a “family pet” Sept. 8. She apparently went out to feed her son’s pit bull when the dog suddenly attacked her.

Storey’s son called 911. First responders called for a medical helicopter because of the severity of her injuries. The pit bull was put down. Charges will not be filed.
