ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Bond will not be reduced for a woman accused of lighting a dog on fire and bragging about it.

Adrienne Martin, 35, is charged with animal abuse and knowingly burning a dog named "Brownie" by rescuers.

The dog was found July 10 anchored to a chain in the 4300 block of Cote Brilliante Avenue with burns to his eyes, nose, feet, ears, legs, and body.

Brownie died a few days after he was rescued.

Investigators say Martin admitted to lighting the dog on fire after it bit her son.

Susan Ryan with the Circuit Attorney's Office says Monday morning Randy Grim, founder of Stray Rescue of St. Louis, made a statement in court in an effort to prevent Martin's bond from being reduced.
