Twenty-nine year-old Kisha Curtis of Newark is accused of tying a pit-bull to the railing in her former Newark apartment building, then leaving the state for more than a week in 2011.

The dog was later found near death in a plastic bag at the bottom of a trash chute. The Essex County prosecutor’s office said Friday that a trial has been set for July 9.

Curtis is not accused of placing the dog in the chute. She has denied the charges against her and rejected a plea offer.

The dog, known as Patrick, survived.

Images of his emaciated body and subsequent recovery inspired an international outpouring of support.
