GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) – The two dogs who authorities say mauled their 22-year-old owner to death have been euthanized, according to Goochland County Sheriff’s Office.

The department held a press conference Monday to provide an update on the investigation and revealed grisly new details surrounding Brittany Stephens’ death.

The sheriff explained the two dogs were euthanized on Saturday after the victim’s family gave authorities permission to put the animals down.

The medical examiner also told the department that Stephens was attacked by the animals while she was still alive, and that one of the animals had a significant amount of blood on his collar and neck.

The sheriff added that both animals were still attacking the deceased victim when the officers arrived on scene.

The animals will be preserved for evidence.
