VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia say a Virginia Beach woman has once again been found to be in possession of dozens of dead animals.

The Virginian-Pilot reports authorities responding to the home Monday found more than 100 dead animals, 24 live cats and a live dog. Animal Control Supervisor Meghan Conti says the dead animals had been stored in freezers or in a plastic container in the garage, where they decomposed beyond recognition.

This isn't the first time so many dead creatures were found at a home belonging to Lisa D. Ross, who wasn't immediately reached for comment.

In 2009, Ross' son was linked to a plot to kill high school students. Authorities searching her home for weapons found 120 cats, half were dead. Similar discoveries happened again in 2012 and 2013.

Charges are pending in the most recent incident, Virginian-Pilot reported.
