(BURNETTSVILLE) - A coroner says a northern Indiana man died when his pet pit bull bit into his jugular vein and that bite marks to his forearms show the man had tried to fend off the animal.

State Police say a family member found 58-year-old Joseph Hines dead outside his White County home Monday night.

County Coroner Matt Westerhouse said that an autopsy Wednesday found no medical problems that might have caused Hines to pass out before the attack. He says Hines died from blood loss.

The county animal warden took custody of the dog.
