- Arlene Renna, 67, died after being attacked by her pet coonhounds at her home

A grandmother died after being beaten to death by her own dogs in her home in New York State.
Arlene Renna was found unconscious in her living room by her husband, Joe, when, according to the police, he returned to their home.
The 67-year-old died of her injuries on the spot after being found around 4 p.m. on Saturday, police said.
John Taylor, the ex-husband of Renna, announced on Facebook that his & # 39; high school sweetheart & # 39; & # 39; accidentally at home & # 39; had died on the 31st birthday of their daughter Jillian.
A police investigation revealed that her wounds were consistent with being bitten by a dog, and it is thought that one or both pet coonhounds launched the attack.

No one else was at home in Pleasant Valley at the time of the attack, police said.
The two dogs were kept in the house as pets and both animals were taken by Dutchess County SCPA according to the police.
The investigation has revealed no evidence of cheating, and the fate of the dogs will be determined by a judge, according to police.
Taylor described his ex-wife, with whom he had been married for 21 years, in a Facebook post yesterday in a Facebook post as & # 39; the friendliest, softest, loving, and wonderful wife & # 39 ;.

He wrote: & # 39; My heart and the hearts of my family have been shattered by the sudden, unexpected and tragic death of my high school love, my first wife, the mother of our three children, the grandmother of our Ellie.
& # 39; Arlene was the nicest, kindest, loving and wonderful woman, there was no better mother, no better grandmother.
& # 39; People like Arlene can never be replaced, they can only live in our hearts forever, and we must all learn by example to be better people, to try to look more like them. & # 39;
Police said officers were called to the scene in Pleasant Valley, New York after Arlene Renna was attacked in her house by her dogs
Taylor said he was married to Reena for 21 years and had three children before they separated and both remarried.
Renna had worked as a nurse in coronary critical care and at a charity for education before she became a social worker.
Coonhounds are not known to attack people and there is only one other registered fatal attack that involves dogs in the US.
In 2014, Jose Robles was killed by 15 dogs in Rockingham County, Virginia, while he was walking with his family.
