CAPE GIRARADEAU, Mo. (KMOX) — A former southeast Missouri deputy has been found not guilty of animal abuse in the shooting a small dog last year.

A Cape Girardeau County jury took only 15 minutes to render its decision in favor of Kelley Barks, a former Bollinger County sheriff’s deputy.

The 36-year-old Marble Hill resident shot the dog during a domestic call in February 20-11. She has since left the sheriff’s office.
