Eight-year-old Erin Ingram was playing in her front yard last week when she was attacked by two dogs belonging to Twyann Artell Vaughn.
A DeKalb County police officer had to shoot one of the dogs. The other dog ran off but was eventually caught by animal control.
Erin has been in critical condition at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston.
DeKalb County police spokeswoman Mekka Parish says Vaughn has been cooperative throughout the investigation. Reckless conduct is a misdemeanor.
