Twinkle Allen

Lehigh Acres

i'm just thankful ive been praying and praying and praying to god and i knew that he was gonna do this for me:38

Back in March, Lee County Domestic Animal Services found 12 dogs inside her garage in Lehigh Acres.

They had no food, no water and were surrounded in their own filth.

The body of another dog was found just feet away from the home.

Mike Colombo

Assistant State Attorney

15:59 15:04

These dogs were neglected they were abandoned, they were left to fend for themselves

Allen's attorney argued those dogs weren't hers -

and their care wasn't her responsibility.

Lee Viacava

Defense Attorney

17:19 17:24

its our position clear as day there isn't enough evidence to take my client's liberty away

The state attorney's office tells NBC2 they're very surprised at the verdict -

given all the evidence they had in the case, showing the amount of cruelty that happened in Allen's home.

But in the end - the jury couldn't say without a reasonable doubt that cruelty was Allen's fault.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TRACKING MORE STORM CHANCES

The onshore flow continued on Thursday, with scattered downpours and storms developing in coastal areas and then moving inland. This activity may try to push back into the Urban Corridor this evening as temps fall into the 80s. The rain and storms will slowly end overnight, with lows in the mid to upper 70s.

Storm chances will continue into Friday, but with some changes. Winds will shift to the south and east, ending the morning rainfall threat. However, scattered PM showers and storms will likely be a good bet in the Urban Corridor, with activity diminishing in the evening. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s.

More moisture works into the area for the weekend, increasing the rain and storm chances. The activity still looks to be scattered, but coverage will likely be greater than during the work week. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 90s.

The extra moisture looks to linger into early next week, keeping PM storm chances elevated. As we move into Tuesday and Wednesday, some slightly drier air will arrive, reducing the coverage of the PM activity.

TROPICAL UPDATE

We are still keeping a close eye on a tropical system east of the Lesser Antilles. This system looks stronger than Wednesday and the National Hurricane Center said it is nearing tropical depression status.

The hurricane center has given this system a 70% chance of development, but it could become a Tropical Depression later tonight.

All the forecast guidance has this system still impacting the Lesser and Greater Antilles, before moving northwest toward the Bahamas. It does not look like this system will impact Florida.

Elsewhere, no major activity is expected over the next 5 days. Return to index of stories...

NEW VIDEO TONIGHT THAT'S TRULY AMAZING.

A BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHER HAS A TRUE SKILL.

CAPTURING WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE EATEN BY A SHARK.

ANDY MURCH HAS BEEN GETTING UP CLOSE WITH SHARKS FOR 15 YEARS.

HE GETS SHOTS LIKE THIS BY USING A MIXTURE OF FISH AND SQUID TO ATTRACT THE SHARKS-

THEN WAITS UNTIL THEIR MOUTHS ARE FULLY EXTENDED BEFORE TAKING EACH SHOT.

HE SAYS HE DOES IT TO PROVE THEY'RE FAR MORE INTERESTED IN EATING FISH THAN THEY ARE PEOPLE. Return to index of stories...
