DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A couple whose dogs fatally mauled a woman in Ohio have been sentenced to months of jail time and community service.

Andrew Nason and Julie Custer were sentenced Wednesday after pleading no contest last month to two misdemeanor counts each of failure to control dogs.

WHIO-TV ( ) reports Nason was sentenced to 150 days in jail and 500 hours of community service. Custer was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 480 hours of community service.

Authorities say the two Cane Corso mastiffs attacked 57-year-old Klonda Richey in her driveway in Dayton in February 2014. The dogs were registered to Custer, who lived with Nason in Richey's neighborhood.

Responding police officers fatally shot the dogs.

A grand jury declined to indict the couple on felony charges.
