A Cedartown woman has been arrested in what police say was a case of animal neglect.

According to arrest warrants at the Floyd County Jail, 31-year-old Brittney Nicole Terry, while residing on Shorter Avenue in Rome back in February, failed to feed her dogs.

One of the dogs died as a result of the neglect, according to the warrants.

Terry was transferred from the Polk County Jail to the Floyd County Jail on Sunday to face two felony counts of aggravated cruelty to animals.
