MONROE - The case of a former Monroe woman accused of hoarding nearly 100 cats in a Monroe residence may reach a resolution next month, according to city and county officials. Delores Marti, a 78-year-old woman now living in Freeport, currently faces three misdemeanor charges of mistreating animals, improperly sheltering animals and obstructing an officer after 92 cats - 50 alive, 42 dead - were found in her residence in the 1100 block of 19th Street in Monroe in August. However, her case may reach a resolution after a pre-trial conference on Dec. 20, said Green County District Attorney Craig Nolen.
