        A Madisonville woman was charged with harboring a vicious dog after her pit bull jumped a fence and attacked a 15-year-old boy, leaving a gash on his neck, Cincinnati police said.

        Belinda Carter, 44, of the 6600 block of Buckingham Place was arrested at 8:15 p.m. Saturday, an hour and a half after the attack, police said.
