Woman faces charges in 2 dogs’ deaths in Lawrence

A Lawrence woman is facing felony animal cruelty charges after officers discovered an emaciated pit bull — as well as a dog that had been dead for at least a week — in her home earlier this month, the MSPCA said.

Raisa Reyes, 26, will be arraigned in Lawrence District Court on Nov. 28 in the deaths of a one-year-old Havanese dog named Niko and the starvation and eventual death of Jada, the pit bull, authorities said. Jada was later humanely euthanized, the MSPCA said.
