NY woman convicted of leaving dog to die

From WSJ

A New York City woman has been convicted of a misdemeanor for leaving her pit bull to starve to death in an apartment after she was evicted.
The emaciated body of Alize, a 2-year-old pit bull, was found by a superintendent in a pool of blood and feces after Cherika Alvarez was evicted from the Bronx home. A veterinarian determined the dog had been starving for nearly six weeks.
Neighbors heard the dog barking and tried to contact Alvarez but she did not respond.
The 29-year-old Alvarez faces up to one year in jail after a judge found her guilty Wednesday of failure to provide proper sustenance, a misdemeanor.
She told police she left a key for an unidentified neighborhood man to take the dog, but he never did.
