Clarkton, N.C. — A Bladen County grand jury has indicted an 18-year-old mother after dogs mauled her 9-day-old daughter to death last month, authorities said Monday.
Chelsea Briggs, of 10140 N. College St. in Clarkton, was charged with involuntary manslaughter after a grand jury met in special session on Friday.
Addyson Paige Camerino was killed on Aug. 30 after several dogs in the home attacked her, authorities said. Five dogs were removed from the home, which authorities said was shared by Briggs, the baby, Briggs' parents, brothers and a tenant.
Neighbors said the family's dogs included a rottweiler and a pit bull.
