DENVER — A Colorado woman who pleaded guilty to being an accessory in the dragging death of a dog has been sentenced to a year and a day in prison.
Thirty-three-year-old Melissa Marie Lockhart was sentenced Friday in Denver federal court.
Her brother, Steven Clay Romero, pleaded guilty to animal cruelty after investigators said he dragged the dog to its death behind a pickup. He was sentenced in July to three years in prison.
Lockhart was accused of lying to investigators about the incident.
