ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The woman accused of killing a dog last July by setting it on fire and then bragging about it on Facebook, is in a St. Louis jail this afternoon after showing up late for her trial.
Adrienne Martin’s attorney says her ride was late, so instead of getting there at 9 a.m., she arrived around 11:15 a.m.
By that time the judge had released the witnesses and had issued a warrant for her arrest.
Martin’s attorney was scheduled to file several motions today, including one to suppress her Facebook postings, ahead of her trial for felony animal abuse and knowingly burning.
Martin allegedly set the dog, which rescuers named “Brownie” on fire last July, because it had attacked her son.
Her new trial date could be next month.
