A Monroe County woman charged in a fatal dog attack has been acquitted of involuntary manslaughter.
The Register-Herald reports that the jury deliberated nearly three hours Thursday before finding Kimberly Blankenship not guilty.
Blankenship was one of four people charged in connection with the death of 70-year-old Lowell E. Bowden of Lindside.
Police said Bowden was attacked by a pack of pit bulls the day after Thanksgiving 2009. He died a week later.
Blankenship's son, 19-year-old Justin Blankenship, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter and other charges in August 2010. He's serving a six- to 24-month sentence at Anthony Correctional Center.
Charges against the other defendants have been dismissed.
