Adrienne Martin Enters Not Guilty Plea In Dog Burning Case

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOX) – The St. Louis woman accused of setting a dog on fire then bragging about it on Facebook pleaded not guilty Monday.

Adrienne Martin’s attorney, Philip Dennis, said outside the courthouse to not judge his client until there is a verdict.

“I wish everyone, including members of Stray Rescue, would wait until there is some kind of verdict or finding in this case before they start trying to crucify someone,” said Dennis.

According to investigators, Martin doused a dog named “Brownie” with gasoline then set him on fire July 10th. He died a few days later.

Dennis said that the witnesses in the case couldn’t possibly have seen Martin commit the alleged attack because it was really dark that night and they saw it happen through bushes in the backyard.

Martin was arrested days after the incident. She reportedly bragged about attacking Brownie on her Facebook page, writing  “I’m on killa mode… kill dogs… today. I mean what I say and I say what I mean… all dogs don’t go to heaven.”

Dennis said that Facebook post is also not definitive because many people were angry about Brownie attacking them or their kids.

Martin’s next court appearance is scheduled for November.
