Woman indicted for leaving dogs to die after moving

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman has been indicted on aggravated animal cruelty charges after she reportedly abandoned her dogs and allowed one of them to starve to death.

Police say the dogs were found inside a house rented by 19-year-old Khadijah Morrow last January.

Morrow moved and it took three weeks for the dogs to be discovered by Morrow’s landlord.

“There wasn’t any food. They were eating off trash and left over food. I guess she was trying to get at me for evicting her and mess up my house to make me spend more money,” Salandria Stevenson.

Stevenson found the pit bull dead inside a bedroom closet and said there was also a Shih Tzu that was very malnourished with its ribs showing.

“It was really dirty and it was just running around eating on the trash. It was eating on  dirty diapers,” Stevenson told us in January.

Veterinarians say the pit bull was starved to death and the Shih Tzu would have died.

Morrow was also indicted for felony charges of failure to appear when she did not attend an earlier court appointment.

    Lets see – she couldn’t pay her rent nor did she feed her animals, much less take care of them, but she sure as hell can get her hair and nails done.

    “Posted 10:28 am, June 23, 2014,” but the video obviously is not recent. Reporter wearing a winter coat and no leaves on the trees… Huh?

    That is one of the most cruel ways to treat an innocent dog I have ever heard of…I just wonder what the penalty is for cruelty to animals to that extent. I can bet you that it isn’t nearly enough in comparison. It is unbelievable the way some people treat animals these days. The least she could have done would be to call the shelter and have them picked up for a chance of adoption. I just wonder why people are so cruel to animals, and I am sure it reflects their views on people also…..Lock the lady up and get her out of society

    Can someone just please slap her? You want to get back at your landlord?? Do it yourself coward, not through the mistreatment of innocent animals. So sick of this type of human behavior, but if we locked her in a closet with no food or water, we would be jailed……so where is the justice?

    I guess this has to be posted different cause it’s “awaiting moderation” but this is my previous post. Y’all have to go to the website and see her real photo..this chicken head scallywag is a disgrace to the human race. Look at her photo on shelby county inmate lookup, I tried to post the link but it’s not letting me. And where did the kool-aid hair come from cause the 2 pics shown in this report are not the nightmare pic on the website! hummm….

    I don’t understand how she doesn’t know how to take care of animals considering she’s survived this long. Should have shared some food outta her own bowl and the real innocent ones wouldn’t have suffered so much. This chick should get the same treatment as the dogs!!
