Suspect in Dog Mauling Case Has A Criminal Past
DAYTON -- Tonight we've learned more about the owners of the dogs that fatally attacked a Dayton woman.
The two were released from jail and have not been formerly charged, pending further investigation.
But after doing some digging, we found that the male suspect, Andrew Nason, has had several convictions, including one for a violent crime.
Nason has eight cases in the Montgomery County courts, including two in civil court.
Charges in two criminal cases were dismissed, but he was twice convicted of possession of cocaine, once in 2005 and again in 2006.
Also in 2005, he was convicted of possessing criminal tools.
And in 2012 he was convicted of petty theft and assault.
Nason's record concerned Klonda Richey's friends.
"Yeah, I was always trying to help her out one way or another," said Tony Snyder, Klonda Richey's friend.
Snyder and Richey had been friends for 16 years.
"It's been really, really rough ... it's been one of the rougher things," he said.
He says he was always worried about her neighbors and their dogs.
"He's been bringing the dogs up to the base of her driveway when she was here, and showing her, Klonda, the dogs, to scare her. He was always trying to threaten or scare her," said Snyder.
ABC 22/FOX 45 tried to contact Nason and knocked on his door several times, but there was no answer.
At the same home two years ago, our cameras were the only ones at the scene when Nason was arrested on suspicion of child endangering.
Police say he was the only one home when a 2-year-old girl fell down the stairs, and Nason didn't call 911 for more than a half an hour.
We checked with Montgomery County Children Services, and was told there is an open case, but they couldn't give us any details.
Our cameras were there again on Friday, as Nason and Julie Custer were taken into custody, in connection with Klonda's death.
A death that is still difficult for her friends to come to terms with.
"I just miss her a lot," said Snyder.
We're working to find out when and/or if the two suspects could be charged.
