GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

The owner of an emaciated boxer found wandering the streets of Garfield Heights during a snow storm has managed to avoid her first court appearance.

Navada Williams was scheduled for an arraignment on Wednesday morning, but instead, Williams has faxed in a not guilty plea.

Her next court hearing will be a pre-trial, but a date has not yet been scheduled.

Williams is facing several charges, including animal cruelty.

The boxer, affectionately named Little Girl by her rescuers, died last week.
