A woman has been mauled to death by a dog while in her bed.
Keira Ladlow, from Birmingham, in England’s West Midlands, was discovered by a relative at her home on Friday (local time), The Sun reports.
It’s believed the dog who attacked her belonged to a family member also living in the home.
A neighbour told the paper they could hear Ms Ladlow screaming and that the dog, reportedly a bull mastiff, “bit her arm off”.
“The screams were extremely loud,” a local resident told the paper.
Neighbours also claimed they heard an “incredibly loud” dog barking.
A police spokesperson said no one else was home with Ms Ladlow when she died.
The dog will now be put down.
“The death is being treated as a tragic incident, but with no suspicious circumstances,” police said.
“A file will be prepared for the coroner in due course.”
