FRANKFORT — State police have arrested a Maine woman on a charge of endangering the welfare of a child after a dog killed her child in the town of Frankfurt.

Twenty-nine-year-old Katrina Mitchell was arrested at her home Wednesday night. The charge was filed after consulting with the District Attorney’s Office.

Her daughter, 7-month-old Annabelle Mitchell, was fatally mauled on April 12 in the living room while the mother slept on a sofa. Mitchell’s husband was not at home at the time and later asked a deputy to shoot the dog, a Rottweiler named Hannibal.

Katrina Mitchell was being held today at Two Bridges Jail in Wiscasset. It wasn’t clear whether she had a lawyer.
