A woman who skipped her trial on misdemeanor animal cruelty charges has been found in Illinois and returned to Tennessee.
Kidd had been detained Thursday by Illinois authorities after they received a governor's warrant.
Police found about 30 dogs with dirty water, inadequate food and shelter at her residence. One dead dog was found in an outdoor pen.
A bench warrant was issued after Kidd failed to show up for her July 17 trial.
Kidd's bond was set at $20,000.
