AUSTIN (KXAN) — A woman is pleading not guilty to being an accessory after the fact for a criminal offense.
Prosecutors said they had arrested 50-year-old Barbara L. Eberhart of Austin on June 1 and found she sold dogs to people with felonies. Eberhart was facing several counts of animal cruelty.
A witness told police on May 27 that Lizzie and her boyfriend, Mark W., got into a fight and that she then hit him over the head with a barbell and dragged him into a ditch and strangled him, which is when she killed him, according to court documents.
Two dogs were also strangled on May 27.
Court records said on Sept. 2, an animal welfare officer from the Travis County Animal Care & Control Station went to the home after reports of abuse. The officer arrived at 4:44 p.m. and found Eberhart with dogs sitting on the couch in her living room and feces everywhere, according to court documents.
A female dog, which was owned by Eberhart, was in a shed where바카라사이트 a leash attached to a fence was tied. Animal care officers saw the dogs and called animal co더킹카지노ntrol. Police found Eberhart around the yard with a dog leash on her right leg. A dog, owned by Eberhart, also was in the shed.
The officers returned to the house, where Eberhart admitted she was responsible for the dogs’ deaths, according to court documents.
A search warrant affidavit from the Travis County District Attorney’s Office says the dogs were in a cage and she knew it. It also states that Eberhart told animal control officials that the dogs had strangled her husband. The affidavit says Eberhart confessed she did it because she knew there would be people looking to kill them. She told the police she did not know the dogs were in the house and said she had been trying to find a better home for them.
Two days later, Eberhart was arrested and charged with capital murder on April 18. She was helapronxd without bail and is due back in court on May 13.
