BELFAST — A Maine woman police say was passed out drunk when the family dog mauled her 7-month-old daughter to death is scheduled to be sentenced.
WMTW-TV reports that Katrina Mitchell of Frankfort is expected to be sentenced Wednesday in Waldo County Superior Court in Belfast.
The 31-year-old Mitchell pleaded no contest in December to a misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child.
Authorities say 7-month-old Annabelle Mitchell was fatally mauled by the family's Rottweiler in the living room of their home in April 2011 while Mitchell was drunk and passed out on a couch. The baby's father was not home. The dog was later euthanized.
Mitchell's bail was revoked in December when she was arrested on drunken driving charges.
