A 29 year old woman has been charged over the death of a toddler, who was killed when he was attacked by a dog in Essex last year.
Three year old Dexter Neal died after he was attacked and bitten by an American Bulldog at Jade Dunne’s home in Essex in August 2016.
The dog was seized by officers at the time and later destroyed.
Essex police have confirmed that Miss Dunne has been charged with ‘owning a dog dangerously out of control’ that resulted in the death of Dexter.
Miss Dunne, of Parker Way, Halstead, Essex, has been released on bail and is due to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court later this month.
Dexter’s uncle Ashley Coe wrote on Facebook in the aftermath of the attack last year:
“I can’t even begin to describe what state we are all in this is an absolutely devastating loss for my sister and her husband and there’s nothing I can say to them.”
