BEDFORD Co., Va. (WSET) -- A Thaxton woman will spend 90 days in jail for animal cruelty.
A judge sentenced 36-year-old Shelby Lynn Gordon to three years but suspended it to 90 days under certain conditions.
An Animal Control deputy responded to her home on Taylors Mountain Road where one dead dog was found inside from starvation in November.
The sheriff's office also said a dog and cat were found alive inside a car with no food or water and three cats were found alive in a storage building also with no food or water.
Gordon is barred from owning or caring for any companion animal.
