Pitbull owner to appear in court

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The owner of a pit bull that's being blamed for the death of a yorkie in Henrico is expected in court Monday.

Deanna Adams faces a judge to answer for her dog "Deuce."

Henrico animal control recommends Deuce be labeled a "dangerous dog".

But Adams told NBC12 last week she will fight that recommendation, saying Deuce only "played" with the yorkie back on April 8th.

If Adams continues the fight, then a judge will set a hearing date.
