An Omaha woman plead guilty Friday morning on charges of felony animal cruelty.

Yolanda Glover was scheduled to have started her bench trial before Judge Patrick Mullen, but instead plead guilty to reduced charges of animal abandonment, cruelty and neglect.

She was sentenced to 30 days in jail with credit for one day already served. That’s less than the five years in prison had she been convicted on the original charges.

Nebraska Humane Society officers found Glover's German shepherd “Tramp" frozen to death and chained to its doghouse on February 1st. A necropsy revealed it died of starvation and hypothermia.

Officials believe the dog had been outside in freezing weather for two weeks without food or water.
