Woman pleads guilty in St. Louis dog neglect case

Wednesday, 19 June 2013 10:19 Published in Local News

A St. Louis woman has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal abuse charges for starving her two dogs to near death, then tossing one in a trash bin behind her home.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 22-year-old Cennitra Fowler pleaded guilty on Friday. As part of plea deal she was placed on probation for one year, ordered to perform 24 hours of community service, must take an animal care class, and must donate $75 to the Humane Society of Missouri. She is also prohibited from owning or caring for any pets during her probation.

 Fowler called the city about her dogs in October 2011, though it wasn't clear why. The dog thrown in the trash later died. The other dog ultimately recovered and was adopted.

 

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is expected to announce their Bomb and Arson Unit will merge with St. Louis County's Bomb and Arson Squad .

The proposed merger is just the latest in a series of moves that the region’s two largest departments have made in the name of saving money on equipment and personnel costs.

The St. Louis Board of Police Commissioners is expected to approve an agreement Wednesday morning at their meeting. 
 
The St. Louis Post Dispatch reports the proposal calls for the county’s four Bomb and Arson detectives and one sergeant to move to the city’s downtown headquarters to work with the city’s four detectives and one sergeant.  The entire unit is to report to a city police captain and split their shifts between days and evenings.
