According to reports, the death of 23-month-old Jace Paul Valdez is being ruled as an accident caused by the mauling. The toddler was inside his grandparents' home when he was mauled to death by the family dog Saturday night.
His 45-year-old grandmother was the only adult present at the time. Her name has not been released, but she was hospitalized for emotional trauma. Meanwhile, his mother is said to have been visiting friends in Spring when the attack occurred around 8 p.m. Saturday night; his father was reportedly working out of state.
The case remains under investigation to determine whether criminal charges will be filed. News 3 will have more information as soon as it becomes available.
