Morrow to Publish Account of Dog Mauling Death

By LJ Staff

William Morrow has hired true-crime scribe Aphrodite Jones to write an account of the dog-mauling death of Diane Whipple. Whipple, a native of Long Island, was killed in San Francisco in March 2001 by a pair of massive Presa Canario dogs belonging to neighbors Marjorie Knoller and Robert Noel. Knoller was found guilty of second-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in March and was sentenced July 15 to the maximum four-year prison term for owning the animals that Judge James Warren said were known to be vicious. Husband Noel, convicted of manslaughter and charges of harboring a mischievous dog, is serving a four-year sentence. The yet untitled volume is scheduled for a spring release.
