Couple whose dogs killed woman get jail, community service

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – A man and woman whose dogs fatally mauled a woman last year have been sentenced to months of jail time and community service.

Thirty-year-old Andrew Nason and 27-year-old Julie Custer were sentenced Wednesday in Dayton after pleading no contest last month to two misdemeanor counts each of failure to control dogs.

WHIO-TV reports that Nason was sentenced to 150 days in jail and 500 hours of community service. Custer was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 480 hours of community service.

Authorities said the two Cane Corso mastiffs attacked 57-year-old Klonda Richey in her Dayton driveway Feb. 7, 2014. They were registered to Custer, who lived with Nason in Richey’s neighborhood.

Responding police fatally shot the dogs.

A grand jury declined to indict the couple on felony charges.
