Two women who admitting causing unnecessary suffering to a dog before it savaged their elderly neighbour to death outside his home have both been sentenced to a year in prison at Liverpool Crown Court.
Hayley Sulley, 30 and Della Woods, 29, pleaded guilty last month to an offence under the Dangerous Dogs Act of allowing a dog to enter a place where it was not allowed to be and where it injured a person.
The pair also admitted three offences of causing unnecessary suffering to a dog.
