The woman accused in stealing a dog that was killed by her brother on Colorado National Monument is expected to plead guilty. The Daily Sentinel writes that Melissa Lockhart filed notice Monday through her attorney that a disposition has been reached with prosecutors and she has requested a change-of-plea hearing.  Lockhart originally pleaded not guilty to stealing Buddy the Dog in December. Steven Romero pleaded guilty last month to aggravated animal cruelty and is to be sentenced in July.
