As crimes go, the one of which former CU student Abby Toll has been accused is hardly run of the mill. The Bouder Daily Camera describes it like so: "Toll is accused of binding her boyfriend's 2-year-old shiba inu, Rex, in hair bands and packing tape and sticking him upside-down to a refrigerator during a fight."
Sounds horrible -- not to mention borderline impossible.

The latest development in the case, according to the Camera: A judge has ruled that Toll will not be able to claim an impaired mental condition as what her lawyer calls "an ongoing victim of domestic violence" at her upcoming felony-animal cruelty trial, slated for April 12. Her boyfriend at the time, Bryan Beck, has already pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty -- and his dog has been adopted by another family.
One, we hope, that realizes Rex is a dog, not a refrigerator magnet.
