Dog Bite Death Sentencing

July 7, 2003.  Posted at 9:50 a.m. CDT

Russellville, Ark. -- An owner of dogs that Pope County authorities say attacked and killed a woman is being sentenced today.

Carl Smith is to be sentenced by Judge Dennis Sutterfield.

 A week ago, Smith's wife, Kim Smith, drew a sentence of probation.

 They were charged in the October 13th, 2001, death of Carolyn Shatswell, whose body was found near the Smith residence. A medical examiner found she had multiple dog bites that caused her to bleed to death.

Carl Smith and Kim Smith each pleaded guilty to manslaughter. The charge carries a maximum penalty of ten years in prison.
