(KSL TV) Two suspects in a dog biting case have turned themselves in to face felony charges.

Warrants were filed last week against Tiffany Vargas and James Hoyt after their dog reportedly attacked a child at Liberty Park in April.

The couple is charged with third-degree felony dog fighting and child abuse.

Vargas and Hoyt's black and white pit bull terrier attacked a 3-year-old girl.

Earlier in the day, several pit bull owners, including Hoyt and Vargas, had been standing in a circle taunting the dogs against each other.
