A 32-year-old pregnant woman was killed by her pit bull in her California home.
The woman’s husband arrived home after work called the police after he found his wife injured and laying on the living room floor.
When officers arrived to the scene she was suffering from major trauma and was not responsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Greg Napora, the victim’s husband, told police that their dog had attack his wife while he was at work.
A neighbor said the husband was outside screaming and upset.
"He was in the driveway all frantic, yelling," Kathy Carlson told the newspaper. "He had blood on his hands, blood on his shirt and blood down his pants."
Emergency crew shot and killed the pit bull while they were tending to the woman.
Their second pet, another pit bull, was not believed to be a part of the fatal attack.
