LEXINGTON, Miss. (AP) - Holmes County Sheriff Willie March says two pit bulls have killed a 3-year-old boy in the community of Thornton.

Deputies identify the child as Christopher Thornton. March says the dogs apparently got out of a pen at the child’s home and attacked the boy about 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Thornton is about 10 miles southwest of Tchula and 16 miles west of Lexington, the county seat.
