    A July sentencing has been scheduled for a 57-year-old Florida woman convicted of drowning a puppy in a south-central Nebraska airport restroom.

    Cynthia Anderson, of Edgewater, Florida, pleaded no contest on Thursday and was convicted of cruel neglect of animal, resulting in its death. She faces up to five years in prison on the felony charge. Her sentencing is set for July 30.

    On Jan. 23 Anderson was barred from boarding a flight at the Central Nebraska Regional Airport in Grand Island because the puppy was so young and not properly contained.

    Authorities say Anderson then was seen entering the restroom. Another woman soon reported finding a dead Doberman puppy in a toilet.
