Thurmont woman sentenced to jail in animal-cruelty case

February 01, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- A Thurmont. Md., woman convicted of animal cruelty has been found guilty of violating her probation and has been ordered to serve 45 days in jail.

Thirty-two-year-old Faith Kilby asked a judge Thursday for another chance but was told her probation was her second chance.

Kilby and her now ex-husband Jeff were sentenced in April 2007 to probation and 64 hours of community service. A police officer had found the remains of their 10-year-old dog decomposing in their backyard in June 2006. Veterinarians determined the dog had been left without proper food, drink, shelter and medical care.

At Thursday's hearing, Probation Agent Rick Mayhew testified that Kilby completed less than ten hours of community service and kept additional pets beyond the single dog and cat allowed under her probation.
