Parents charged after baby girl mauled to death by Husky in beauty spot car park

A couple has been charged in connection with the death of their three-month-old baby girl who was savaged to death by a Husky dog at a beauty spot.

Little Kyra King was killed in the car park of Ostler’s Plantation close to Kirkby Moor Nature Reserve in Lincolnshire, at around 11.13am on Sunday, March 6.

Despite the best efforts of emergency services, she was pronounced dead at the scene after sustaining horrific injuries to the neck and head.

Her parents Karen Alcock, 41, and Vince King, 54, of Castledyke Bank, New York, Lincoln, have now been charged in connection with their daughter’s death.

They will appear before magistrates next week accused of being in charge of a dog which was out of control causing injury resulting in death.

Lincolnshire Police said the dog which carried out the attack has been kept in isolation at secure kennels but officers will now seek an order for it to be destroyed.

Detective Constable Craig Davey, said: “This has been a profoundly sad investigation for everyone involved in understanding the circumstances around baby Kyra’s death.

“We have kept an open mind throughout this investigation, which has been lengthy and thorough and involved specialist forensic experts and officers from our Protecting Vulnerable People unit.

“We have now brought charges against two people, and will continue to work with the CPS as the case makes its way through the justice system.”

The couple will appear at Boston Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday, November 9.
