After a several-hour trial, a jury cleared Kimberly Zakrzewski of allegations that she left behind Baxter’s business.

The case began one morning in April when Virginia Cornell said she saw her neighbor, Zakrzewski, leave behind a mess left by Baxter, a fluffy, 19-pound Westie-bichon frise mix.

Zakrzewski, a stay-at-home mom who often cares for Baxter, said no such incident occurred.
