Recent animal cruelty case in Shoals moves forward in court process
LAUDERDALE COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A recent animal cruelty case in Lauderdale County will soon head to the grand jury.
An attorney for 38-year-old Laura Fitterman Sherwood waived a preliminary hearing this week. Sherwood and her husband Patrick are charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty.
Sherwood’s attorney said he wants to get the case into circuit court so a mental evaluation can be performed.
Both the Sherwoods are being held in the Lauderdale County Detention Center.
