Jacksonville Woman Dead After Dog Bite, Memorial To Be Held

New details about the death of a woman after getting bitten by a dog. It turns out, she was a dog lover herself.

Forty-nine year-old Theresa Ellerman of Jacksonville died Saturday after an Alaskan Malamute bit her in the neck at her friend's house in Norfolk, Virginia.

An autopsy report says it was indeed the bite that killed Ellerman. Her obituary says she was a Marine, most recently stationed at Camp Lejeune and had four dogs of her own. Ellerman leaves behind three children. The 49-year-old was also engaged to be married.

A memorial service will be held Wednesday at The Infant Of Prague Catholic Church at 10:30 a.m.
