Man admits owning dangerous dog that attacked his gran.

A MAN whose grandmother died following a dog attack earlier this year has admitted owning a dangerous animal.

Craig Greve, 23, of Crossways Road, Ely, Cardiff, answered "guilty" when the charge was put to him at Cardiff Crown Court yesterday afternoon.

It alleged he had been the owner of a dog which caused injury while dangerously out of control. Reading the charge in full, the clerk of the court told him: "On March 20, 2015, you were the owner of an American bulldog named Solo which was dangerously out of control at Crossways Road and while so out of control injured Rona Greve, resulting in her death."

Prosecutor David Elias said there had been no reported sentencing on such a charge since the new legislation relating to dangerous dogs was introduced in Wales.

John Charles Rees, QC, representing Greve, said the case had been adjourned previously for medical evidence on "causation" relating to Mrs Greve's death.

He said she had had "considerable heart problems" which had led to one health incident just a few days before she died.

He told the judge that causation was being accepted on the basis that there were dog bites and trauma but a serious heart attack could have been suffered at any time.

Greve was remanded in custody and will return to court on September 10.
