The woman accused of leaving six dogs in a hot car to die briefly appeared in court Wednesday.

Police say this summer a breeder hired Sara Mauter to transport dogs to Texas.

Mauter’s attorneys were expected to ask Judge Stan Whitaker to dismiss her animal abuse charges due to claims of a grand jury violation.

However, the defense withdrew the motion saying they want to continue working with the state.
