Marti faces charges of mistreating animals
MONROE - A Monroe woman who was found keeping more than 50 cats in a Monroe residence last month was charged Thursday with misdemeanor charges of mistreating animals. Delores Marti, 78, was charged with three Class A misdemeanors of mistreating animals, improperly sheltering animals and obstructing an officer. The charges relate to an incident that began Aug. 9 when police were called to Marti's residence in the 1100 block of 19th Street for a report of a foul smell emanating from the house, as well as reports of more than the city limit of three cats residing inside.
