A 37-year-old Tyrone woman has been charged, after police allegedly found a dead cat and dog in her home.
Tyrone police executed a search warrant at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday at Roberta Ewing’s Bald Eagle Avenue home.
According to a probable-cause affidavit, during the search police found a dead pit bull terrier in the home, as well as a dead cat in a soda case on the basement steps.
The home was allegedly littered with trash and animal feces, with barely any floor showing, according to the affidavit.
Two juveniles had also been seen in the home overnight during an unrelated matter, according to the affidavit.
Ewing has been charged with two third-degree felony counts of aggravated cruelty to animals, third-degree felony endangering the welfare of children and two third-degree misdemeanor counts of animal neglect.
She was arraigned Wednesday before District Judge Andrew Blattenberger, of Martinsburg, and was sent to the Blair County Prison on a $50,000 bond.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. Nov. 14 before District Judge Fred B. Miller, of Tyrone.
