SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A woman charged with felony animal torture is set to stand trial later this month.

The Sacramento Bee reports (https://bit.ly/2afE4fa ) Friday that 23-year-old Kayla Wright will go on trial on July 28 in Sacramento Superior Court.

Authorities claim Wright was responsible for wrapping a speaker cord around a dog’s neck, killing it and leaving it in a trash bin in a Carmichael, California neighborhood.

A second dog was found alive with its neck strung with cord and painter’s tape around its jaws.

Authorities say a third dog was found cowering under a parked car after the owner reported the dogs missing.

Wright also faces dog theft charges in two December 2014 incidents in a Sacramento suburb.

Sheriff’s officials said images from neighborhood surveillance cameras linked her to the animal thefts.
