LOWELL (CBS) – Lowell Police are investigating after a young girl was attacked by a dog. Eight-year-old Soleana has 13 stitches in her face after a dog bite her in her own yard.

“For her, she’s handling it pretty well, which is surprising because she’s very emotional and she’s been strong for me too,” said her mom Ashely Adair.

Soleana and Ashely spoke with WBZ-TV before they left for the hospital Thursday afternoon.

“Her face is infected. It’s been draining a lot. They’re going to see if she needs antibiotics, and if she does, she’ll be admitted,” said Adair.

Ashely says a dark black or brown pit bull bit her daughter in the front yard of their Gorham Street home Tuesday night.

“Some guy was walking by. His dog was off the leash and she ran up to pet him for excited and, he must have been scared and he bit her,” she said.

“You can’t walk your dog like that the dogs needs to be on a leash. It could be worse,” said the girl’s step-grandfather Victor Luna Jr.

Parents in the area are keeping their keeps out of their front yards.

“For a mom of three children, knowing that my kids play in the neighborhood, it’s concerning,” said Amanda Zapkoski.

Lowell Police say they are investigating. Ashley hopes the dog owner is caught, so no other kids get hurt.

“I hope he just realizes that it’s not okay to keep your dog off a leash when you’re walking. Especially if you don’t know if there are kids around, you don’t know how your dog is going to be with other kids,” said Adair.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Twin Cities woman was less than a week into her new marriage to a fellow Air Force veteran when she was allegedly shot to death by her ex-husband.

Police say Lauri Deatherage was killed inside her Robbinsdale home Friday, four days after both her 48th birthday and her wedding to Billy Deatherage. Lauri Deatherage’s 64-year-old ex-husband was arrested after a 10-hour standoff with police and is awaiting charges, the Star Tribune reported.

Billy Deatherage told the newspaper Sunday that he met his wife 30 years ago while stationed at Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota. They reconnected as friends about four years ago and he proposed this spring.

“Our time was cut short by an atrocious act,” said Deatherage,
