— The owners of the dogs that mauled a woman whose death prompted legislation have been charged. 43-year-old Brian Graden & 45-year-old Melody Graden were booked Tuesday on charges of criminally negligent homicide & failure to immunize a pet for rabies. The Gradens owned the 5 dogs that fatally attacked 24-year-old Emily Colvin Dec. 7 & injured another woman. In February, Alabama lawmakers passed “Emily’s Law,” under which dog owners face harsh fines or prison time if their animals injure or kill another person. The Gradens could not be charged under that law, as it was passed after the Colvin’s death.
