An Ohio woman will spend the night outside for dumping 33 kittens in the woods. The overnight temperature in the area tonight is expected to dip into the 20s.

Michelle Murray, a former animal rescuer, will have no food or shelter but will have water and a way to communicate with park rangers in case of and emergency.

Judge Michael Cicconetti said he wanted Murray to feel what the kittens experienced.

The 25-year-old was convicted last month of animal cruelty and also faces a 15-day jail sentence.

The animals were recovered but many had upper respiratory infections, and nine died.
