    SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. - A dog owner was convicted of involuntary manslaughter Thursday for allowing her pit bulls to run loose and kill an 82-year-old woman.

    Deanna Large, 37, was found guilty in the death of Dorothy Sullivan, who was attacked March 8 by three pit bulls while she took her shih tzu for a walk.

    The jury recommended Large serve three years in prison. The judge has the option to reduce the sentence, but cannot increase it when Large is sentenced Feb. 24.

    Hopefully that will be a wakeup call for the other irresponsible pit bull owners. They should be held accountable for the death and destruction their dogs cause.

    I would be afraid to be her living with that many pit bulls. Her life was in danger and she probably didn't even know it.
