CLEVELAND-- A 19-year-old woman was set to be sentenced Monday morning under Goddard's Law, the animal abuse law named after FOX 8's Dick Goddard.
Cleveland police said Deanna Caraballo slammed an 8-week-old puppy to the ground and killed it on Sept. 16.
Earlier this year, Caraballo pleaded guilty to cruelty to animals, which is now a felony.
Sentencing was scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. The defendant did not show up and a warrant was issued for her arrest.
