PLAINFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman has been found guilty in connection with a dog attack that seriously injured a home health care worker.

A judge ruled Monday that Jenna Allen was aware her dogs were dangerous when two of them attacked a woman on Dec. 3, 2014. The woman, who had been caring for Allen’s grandmother at a Plainfield home, suffered injuries to her face, chest, arms and legs. The dogs were euthanized.

Allen opted against a jury trial and was convicted by the judge of reckless endangerment, possession of a nuisance dog and failure to comply with dog license requirements.

Allen’s boyfriend is charged with reckless endangerment in connection with the attack. His trial is ongoing.

Allen made no comment after her conviction. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 4.
