A woman accused of leaving a dog to die in frigid temperatures is due in court on Monday.
According to police, 50-year-old Michelle Bennett of Hartford faces an animal cruelty charge.
Bennett is scheduled to face a judge in Hartford at 10 a.m.
Last week, police said they tried to serve an arrest warrant several times at Bennett's Adams Street address; however, they found her on Cabot Street.
According to animal law advocates, Bennett left the dog to live outside for about a month without food or water.
The dog eventually froze to death, police said.
It was found on New Year's Day.
Bennett was arrested on Thursday.
