Charged with two fourth-degree offenses for tormenting and torturing an animal, the New Jersey woman accused of starving a pit bull and throwing it down a trash chute was back in court today as a crowd demonstrated outside the courthouse in support of the dog.
Kisha Curtis plead not guilty to animal abuse charges, yet prosecutors maintain that the Newark resident left town for a week with the dog tied to a railing, starving in her apartment.
The judge in the case is expected to consider future court dates and could possibly schedule a trial. Curtis also faces two abandonment charges that could land her in jail for up to six months.
