Parents charged after 3-month-old baby girl mauled to death by dog

A MUM and dad have been charged after their three-month-old daughter was mauled to death by a husky.

Kyra Leanne King was attacked by the dog at a forest in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, in March.

She tragically couldn’t be saved and died after suffering head and neck injuries.

Her parents Karen Alcock, 41, and Vince King, 54, have now been charged with being in charge of a dog which was out of control causing injury resulting in death.

The couple will appear at Boston Magistrates’ Court on November 9.

Lead investigator DC Craig Davey, said: “This has been a profoundly sad investigation for everyone involved in understanding the circumstances around baby Kyra’s death.

“We have kept an open mind throughout this investigation, which has been lengthy and thorough and involved specialist forensic experts and officers from our Protecting Vulnerable People unit.

“We have now brought charges against two people, and will continue to work with the CPS as the case makes its way through the justice system.”

Police confirmed the dog has been in isolation at secure kennels since the attack but they are planning to euthanise it.
