Ohio cat lover dead after being mauled by two neighborhood dogs

DAYTON, OH

Police say they found 57-year-old Klonda Richey unclothed, with her coat apparently torn off by the mixed-breed dogs.

Authorities said Richey's next-door neighbors, 28-year-old Andrew Nason and 23-year-old Julie Custer, were taken into custody and being held pending a formal charge of reckless homicide.

Results of an autopsy being conducted by the Montgomery County coroner weren't expected before Monday.

The Dayton Daily News reports police were forced to kill the two male dogs after they charged officers.

The newspaper reported Richey, of Bruce Avenue, owned and cared for at least 20 cats. She worked as a part-time supply clerk at the county children's' services office.
