Dog-Attack Case Revived

San Francisco, CA -- Prosecutors have asked an appeals court to reinstate a woman's murder conviction in the dog-mauling death of a neighbor. The state attorney general's office said a judge used the wrong legal test for murder when he overruled a jury's verdict, sentencing Marjorie Knoller to four years in jail for involuntary manslaughter. Knoller and her husband, Robert Noel, were caring for a pair of Presa Canarios when the 120-pound dogs attacked and killed Diane Whipple, 33, outside her apartment in January 2001.

Rioting Greek Fans Set Fire To Dog

A black-and-white husky was smeared with tar and set on fire by rioting soccer fans after the Greek Cup final, police said Wednesday. The dog was attacked by fans of Aris Thessaloniki after the team was defeated 1-0 Saturday by crosstown rival PAOK. After the game, Aris fans set fires in Toumba Stadium and later smashed cars and property. The dog was apparently picked on for its colors: PAOK play in black and white. An animal welfare group found and treated the husky for burns and an injured eye, and informed the police Wednesday, authorities said. -- FOXSports
