BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) - A Bridgeport woman accused of fatally beating a poodle, assaulting her mother and testing positive for drugs has been ordered into inpatient substance-abuse treatment.

The Connecticut Post reports (https://bit.ly/1mfjycV ) that Rommy Rodriguez lost her bond and was ordered detained for violating conditions of her release by repeatedly testing positive for drugs.

Animal rights demonstrators who have been appearing in growing numbers at Rodriguez’s court appearances say she should go to jail, not substance abuse treatment.

Rodriguez was arrested last November, accused of fatally beating her 8-month-old puppy because it barked too much. She’s accused of burying the dog’s body in her backyard.

She was arrested in March for allegedly assaulting her mother in a dispute over a misplaced iPad charger.



It wasn’t known Monday who her lawyer is.
