Jefferson County’s district attorney on Monday filed charges against two pit bull owners after their dogs killed an 89-year-old woman and seriously injured a 12-year-old boy last month.
Kayla Mooney, 33, faces four counts of unlawful ownership of a dangerous dog, while Victor Bentley, 29, was charged with two counts of the same offense, the district attorney’s office said Monday in a news release.
Mary Gehring, 89, and her grandson were allegedly attacked by the two dogs Sept. 14 in the 15000 block of West 1st Avenue in Golden. Gehring was taken to the hospital, where she later died, while her grandson was flown to Children’s Hospital.
Both dogs were euthanized after the incident.
Mooney and Bentley are set to appear in court Nov. 22 for an advisement of charges.
