An Oahu grand jury indicted a Haleiwa woman on an animal cruelty charge today.

Andrea Fiegle, 36, is charged with felony cruelty to animals.

She remains free on $11,000 bail.

Honolulu police say Fiegle told them she cut the dog’s throat with a kitchen knife at her Paalaa Road home Sunday after losing her temper.

Circuit Judge Dexter Del Rosario denied prosecutor’s request to increase Fiegle’s bail to $50,000. He said if the state wants to commit Fiegle to the Hawaii State Hospital for mentally ill patients, there are other laws it can use to achieve that.
