HOUSTON, TX – You might recall that deadly dog attack in Houston last January. Two pit bulls jumped and killed a 43-year-old woman named Christina Bell.

Now, the dog’s owners, 33-year-old Timothy Dewayne Coleman and 26-year-old Tiara Deshawn Thomas, have been charged in the death.

Bell was found dead in the 7600 block of Glen Prairie. Two other people were injured in the attack — luckily, they survived.

They say they reported to police that dogs were running loose in the neighborhood.

Now, Coleman and Thomas face up 20 years in prison and $10.000 worth of fines.

Being an irresponsible pet owner is not cool.

We’ve got to put a stop to these vicious dog attacks.
