Deberry Enters Not Guilty Plea

MAYFIELD, KY – A Mayfield woman charged with 30 counts of cruelty to animals entered a not guilty plea Wednesday in Graves District Court. 25-year old Amy Deberry and her husband Joanal are accused of breeding pit bulls for dog fighting. Joanal also faces 30 counts of cruelty to animals charges as well as charges of possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia. More than 50 pit bulls were found at the couple’s Graves County home last month and many of the dogs showed signs of injuries consistent with dog fighting. A preliminary hearing for both Deberrys is set for December 10th at 1pm. (posted 5:10am by Joe Jackson)
