WAYNESVILLE, Ohio (AP) - An Ohio man says he knew the two Great Dane dogs police suspect killed his wife were aggressive and urged her to get rid of them.
A coroner's investigator says 49-year-old Mary Matthews was attacked by one or both dogs and apparently bled to death.
Police say Mark Matthews found his wife's body Friday upon returning to their Warren County home after being away for a few days.
Police found blood throughout the home in the garage, bathroom, living room and other areas of the house.
They say the woman apparently did not realize the extent of her injuries.
County coroner's investigator Doyle Burke says Matthews reported that he and his wife rescued the dogs about two years ago and that they were known to be aggressive.
Both dogs were handed over to the Warren County Dog Warden and euthanized on Saturday.
