The trial of two Hot Springs Village women facing charges related to the death of HSV resident Joan Kappen began Tuesday in Saline County Circuit Court.
Brande Coy, 50, and her daughter, Emily Coy, 25, are the defendants.
The case stems from a Nov. 21, 2013, incident that occurred Nov. 21, 2013, when Kappen, 75, was mauled to death by a bull mastiff/ pit bull dog while she was taking her morning walk.

LITTLE ROCK â€” Republican gubernatorial hopeful Asa Hutchinson derided Democratic rival Mike Ross' tax cut plan as "pie in the sky," while Ross accused Hutchinson of acting like a "slick lawyer" in his support for a minimum wage hike as the two squared off in a debate Tuesday.
The two ex-congressmen traded jabs over a range of issues as they met for their second televised debate of the heated and expensive Arkansas governor's race. The two are running to succeed Democratic Gov. Mike Beebe, who is barred by term limits from seeking re-election.
