LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) - A Los Angeles County jury has found a man whose pit bulls mauled a woman to death guilty of murder.

Jurors on Friday returned the second-degree murder verdict for 31-year-old Alex Donald Jackson.

Jackson owned four pit bulls that mauled 63-year-old Pamela Devitt, who was on a morning walk in May, 2013 when she was attacked.

The coroner says she died from blood loss after being bitten 200 times.

Jackson is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 3.
