CALGARY - A sentencing date has been set for a central Alberta woman convicted in a pit-bull attack that left another woman seriously injured and lying in a pool of blood.

Rita Phillip of Sundre was found guilty in June of commanding the dogs to attack the woman at a trailer home in August 2012.

Deanna Wolfe was found unconscious behind a closed bedroom door and was so badly mauled that emergency responders thought she was dead.

She suffered life-threatening wounds to her arms and face, lost an ear and has had several surgeries.

Wolfe was a friend of Phillip and was visiting her.

Phillip is to be sentenced on March 19.
