DAYTON —

A public visitation is planned for a Dayton woman who was mauled to death by two dogs outside her home on Friday.

The visitation will be held 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Baker-Hazel & Snider Funeral Home & Crematory, 5555 Philadelphia Drive.

Dayton police are still investigating what led to the mixed-mastiff dogs coming in contact with 57-year-old Klonda Richey. The encounter resulted in Richey's clothes being torn off and her being left naked in the snow outside of 31 E. Bruce Ave.

A passerby discovered Richey's body and called 911. When Dayton police arrived, two dogs charged at officers, prompting the officers to shoot and kill them.

The dogs were registered to Richey's neighbor Julie Custer, 25, of 35 E. Bruce Ave.

Custer and Andrew Nason, 28, the owner of the 35 E. Bruce house, were arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail, but were later released before formal charges of reckless homicide were filed in Montgomery County courts.

Richey's death follows her 2012 request for a civil stalking order against Nason which was denied by Montgomery County Magistrate Kristi Wuebben and then her appeal was later denied Common Pleas Court Judge Michael Krumholtz in February of 2013.

There were also a series of 13 anonymous complaints to the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center about issues with the dogs at 35 E. Bruce Ave. and more than 20 calls – some anonymous – some from Richey or affiliated with Richey's phone number – to the Regional Dispatch Center complaining about the dog issues, drug use and fireworks.

The dispatch calls, made between January of 2012 to December 2013, primarily were dog complaints that included aggressive behavior, neglect and barking.
