The dog attack occurred Sunday morning off Highway 66 in the Wiser Branch area of Arjay, where Lorraine and her husband Johnny Saylor were attacked outside of their home, according to the sheriff.

He is now charged with harboring a vicious animal after his pit bulls killed 66-year-old Lorraine Brock Saylor, according to the Bell County Sheriff's Department.

Her husband, Johnny Saylor, tried to assist his wife but also was attacked by the dogs.

"Under no circumstances are you to engage this risky animal", the department said.

Steele said Johnny Saylor is expected to survive.

Johnny's brother was able to distract the dogs long enough for Johnny Saylorto run inside and get his gun. Investigators said the husband managed to shoot the dogs, killing one of them.

"Then he come back out with his pistol and shot both of them", James Saylor said. "It's overwhelming the circumstances and what he found", Steele said. "The deputies determined that the dogs did not belong to the couple".
