ARJAY, KY – A man has been charged after his two pit bulls mauled a couple Christmas Eve morning, killing the woman.

According to the Bell County Sheriff’s Department, Johnny Saylor woke up Christmas Eve morning and started to walk outside his house to find his wife, 66-year-old Lorraine Saylor, who normally woke up before him and spread bird seed in the yard.

When he went out to the porch, he was immediately attacked by two pit bulls that belonged to his neighbor, 42-year-old Johnny Lankford. The dogs latched on to Johnny’s arm and tried dragging him to the ground.

Luckily, Johnny’s brother lives next door and heard the commotion. He stepped out and began yelling at the dogs, causing them to release their hold on Johnny. This gave Johnny enough time to run back inside and grab a .22 caliber pistol.

When he returned outside, Johnny shot one of the dogs in the chest after it lunged at him. This caused the injured dog to run from the scene.

When Johnny made his way to the front of the house, he found Lorraine. She was lying motionless on the ground with the second pit bull standing nearby. Fearing for his life, Johnny shot the second pit bull, killing it.

Johnny was rushed to the hospital with injuries to his arm and head, but it was too late for poor Lorraine. She was pronounced dead at the scene after receiving massive injuries to her neck, face, and shoulder.

Lankford, who was already in jail on unrelated domestic assault charges since Dec. 22, was charged with harboring a vicious animal.
