STAMFORD, Conn. – A prosecutor says he does not plan to charge the owner of a chimpanzee that mauled and blinded a woman.
State's Attorney David Cohen said Monday that no charges are planned against Sandra Herold, of Stamford.
The 200-pound chimpanzee went berserk in February after Herold asked victim Charla Nash to help lure him back into her house. The chimp ripped off Nash's hands, nose, lips and eyelids.
Nash's family is suing Herold for $50 million and wants to sue the state for $150 million.
