ROCHESTER, Minnesota (KROC-AM News) – A woman charged with killing a pet in a burglary earlier this year has signed a plea deal with Olmsted County prosecutors.
Angela Spears, 36, pleaded guilty Friday to felony charges of burglary or possession of a stolen item and drug possession. Instead, the second-degree robbery and criminal damage charges were dropped.
Spears was arrested on the night of June 30 after Rochester police officers were dispatched to investigate a robbery at an apartment along North Broadway. The victim told police that when he got home, he found his apartment looted and immediately called law enforcement.
Responding officers searched the apartment and found Spears sleeping on the porch and a dead cat on the other side of the door. According to the lawsuit, shards of pottery were found next to the cat, suggesting that someone may have walked through the pottery or dropped it on the cat. Spears’ backpack was found in the pouch, containing small amounts of marijuana and methamphetamine.
Court records show that Spears admitted not living in the apartment, and the victim told police that he did not know Spears and did not give him permission to enter the residence.
The plea deal calls for a prison sentence and the possibility of up to 240 days in prison. She is scheduled to be sentenced on December 29th.
Last year, Spears was given a five-year suspended sentence on an arson conviction. She had been accused of breaking into a condominium and setting her clothes on fire after stacking things on her bed. She also allegedly used a baseball bat to break her mirror.
