VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — The owner of a shuttered behavioral rehabilitation center for dogs has been barred from importing, rescuing or adopting animals.
Jamie Cochran owned the Forever Home Rescue and Rehabilitation Center in Virginia Beach, where a woman adopted a pit bull that killed her 90-year-old mother only hours after she brought the dog home. The victim’s daughter is seeking $5 million in damages over the attack last May.

She was also ordered not to import, adopt or rescue animals for two years. The dog rehab center has since closed.
