Knox County (WVLT) -- There will be no charges against the owner of two pit bulls that killed a woman Monday in West Knox County.
John Gill from the Knox County District Attorney General's office says there was no proof that Charles Smallwood acted in gross negligence while having knowledge that the dogs were dangerous.
Gill says barring any new evidence, that decision will not change.
