2 arrested for dog attack on California woman, 75


Thirty-nine-year-old Alba Cornelio and 19-year-old Carla Cornelio were arrested Wednesday by county animal control officers. They remained jailed Thursday and could face felony charges of owning dogs that caused serious bodily injury.

Authorities say the dogs came through a hole in a fence and attacked Emako Mendoza on June 18 in the Paradise Hills area. An investigation showed that the dogs attacked another neighbor on Christmas.

The dogs have been euthanized.
