MONROE - Delores Marti, the woman accused of hoarding 50 cats in a Monroe residence, pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of animal imprisonment Monday. Marti, 78, appeared in Green County Circuit Court Monday for an initial appearance on misdemeanor charges of mistreating animals, imprisoning animals and obstructing an officer. Green County District Attorney Gary Luhman recommended Marti sign a $1,000 signature bond with conditions that she not possess, feed or in any way care for any cats.
