NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The family of a New Orleans murder victim finds comfort after being united with their slain daughter's dog.

Momma was left homeless following the murder of 23-year-old Julia Anderson on March 19.

Anderson was stabbed in the parking lot of McDonald's around 11:30 p.m. March 19 in the 3000 block of Elysian Fields Avenue.

Anderson's boyfriend, 38-year-old Christopher Hutsell, was arrested in connection with the stabbing. Hutsell was booked and charged with one count of second degree murder.

Following Anderson's death, Momma was transported to the Louisiana SPCA by EMS. Momma was scanned for a microchip and staff found contact information for Anderson's mother, Jeannine, who lives in Missouri.

Momma made the 835 mile, 13 hour trip across the country to reunite with family.

“Being with Momma is the only thing keeping me going,” says Jeannine Anderson. “Our family will gain strength from Momma.”
