Woman charged after boy aged three mauled to death by dog

A woman has today been charged in connection with the death of a three-year-old boy who was mauled to death by a dog.

Jade Dunne aged 29 has now been charged with owning a dog dangerously out of control resulting in the death of Dexter Neal in Essex.

Dexter sadly died after he was bitten in Dunne’s home in Halstead on August 18th 2016.

Terrible screams were heard from inside the house as they fought to save the boy inside the house while his distraught mother was screaming in the front garden.

Ashley Coe Dexter’s uncle posted on Facebook “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.”

Dunne has been released on bail and will appear in court at a later date in March.
