An 18-month-old Brewton girl was fatally mauled by a Rottweiler dog Sunday night. Escambia County Sheriff's Major Mike Murphy, in a statement, identified the victim as Taylor Kitlica. He said the girl's two-and-a-half year old brother also was attacked, but he survived with minor bites on his back. Murphy said Taylor suffered massive head injuries.
An investigation determined the girl's family found the dog wandering their neighborhood. They decided to take the animal in and chained the dog in their front yard in hopes the owner would see it.
