MONTGOMERY COUNTY, N.Y. -- A Pattersonville woman was arrested, accused of killing her dog with a baseball bat and burying it in the backyard.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's office says Debralee Knight, 33, beat her pit bull to death with an aluminum baseball bat earlier this year. Knight also allegedly lied to police during the investigation, where she gave a sworn written statement.

Knight was arraigned in the Town of Florida Court on charges of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals and making a false punishable written statement, both misdemeanors.

Knight is due back in court December 11th. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
