A state worker at Mid-Hudson Psychiatric Center is charged with felony animal cruelty after she was seen on video throwing her roommate’s dog from their deck multiple times. A warning – this story may be disturbing to some viewers. Betty Ann Davis, 49, from Bushkill, Pennsylvania, is accused of throwing 9-pound pomsky “Elli” five times off a 2-story deck and into a rock pile last month. The incidents were caught on surveillance camera while she allegedly dog-sat in Pike County, Pennsylvania. Elli’s owner gave News 12 the videos, as well as the animal’s x-ray, and says the dog suffered a broken leg that required amputation.
The NYPD is actively searching for two individuals who opened fire on a crowded train platform in the Bronx. The incident, which occurred on Monday, resulted in one fatality and left five others injured, although they are expected to recover. The shooting took place at the Mount Eden Station, sending shockwaves through the community and raising concerns about public safety in the area. In response, the NYPD has released images of the two suspects, who were spotted fleeing from the scene shortly after the shooting occurred. Authorities are urging anyone with information about the suspects or the incident to come forward and assist in the investigation.
Corena Kelley, a resident of Kingston, has been sentenced to six years in jail following her conviction for intent to sell fentanyl. The conviction stems from a search warrant executed on Kelley's apartment and car in December 2021. During the search, law enforcement officers recovered 10 grams of fentanyl, along with thousands of dollars in cash and two loaded pistols. The discovery of these items led to Kelley's arrest and subsequent conviction.
