(KARK) The parents of a 5-year-old mauled to death by a Bullmastiff remember their son Wednesday.

“He was my baby. We were close. We were very, very close,” said mother Mica Evans.

Evans says her son, Ayden, liked spaghetti and riding sports bikes, plus playing with Ninja Turtles.

“My birthday was June 8 and he died June 9,” said Evans.

Garland County deputies say the 5-year-old died inside a Jessieville home, after being attacked by a dog Sunday. His mom says Ayden was staying with her sister for the summer, when he was allowed to go to a neighbor’s home.

The neighbor had a Bullmastiff that attacked Ayden.
