HIGH POINT — Guilford County Assistant District Attorney Walt Jones said he doesn’t expect charges to be filed in connection with a pit bull mauling death.
Three-year-old Braelynn Rayne Coulter died Feb. 24 after she was attacked by the family pit bull at her home in High Point.
The dog was euthanized a few days later.
Jones said Tuesday that in order to file charges, “we had to have a lot more than what we had.”
He didn’t elaborate further.
According to police, Coulter suffered traumatic injuries to her lower abdomen.
She was taken to High Point Regional Hospital, where she died.
She is survived by her mother, Randi Coulter; her father, Brandon Autry; and her stepfather, Christopher Peters.
