Noelle Moor's booking mug
Friday, April 6, 2018

An arraignment for Noelle Moor, arrested last week on suspicion of cooking her dog alive, has been postponed, court officials said Wednesday.

Moor, 28, must undergo a psychological evaluation to ensure she’s fit to proceed with an arraignment and trial.

According to court papers and police reports, Moor believed the spirit of her ex-boyfriend was inside her 7-year-old Chihuahua, Bolt.

An officer who’d gone to her mobile home in the 100 block of Northwest Fourth Street on March 20, found the dog had been removed from the oven and was dead on top of the stove, according to a probable cause report by Officer Jeff Dalrymple. “The oven was not currently on when I checked. The smell of burned hair and flesh was still in the air.”

Moor, a former exotic dancer, according to her Facebook page, was booked at Clatsop County Jail on suspicion of felony aggravated first-degree animal abuse.

During her initial arraignment March 21, she was acting oddly and muttering, causing the judge to turn off the audio at one point.
