Posted Updated

CARY, N.C. — A Cary woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to animal cruelty charges.

Sylvia Bolden was fined $200, given a suspended sentence and ordered to refrain from owning animals for two years.

Eleven dead cats were found in her home over the summer.

Bolden said they were in good health when she left on a trip out of state.

Investigators say the carcasses were so decomposed it was impossible to tell how they died.
