  • Video: Family and friends gather to mourn Tyler Trammell-Huston

    Tyler Trammell-Huston, 9, died from being mauled by three pit bull terriers in a house trailer in Yuba County, Calif., while his sister went to work for a few hours on Jan. 3, 2016. Alexandria Griffin-Heady has said she had never known her dogs to be violent. At a tearful news conference last week, she said she had promised to protect her little brother and would never forgive herself for leaving him alone. The dogs – a mother and two offspring – have been in custody at a Yuba County shelter since the attack; Griffin-Heady isn’t fighting the decision to put them to death.
