OXFORD, Ohio (AP) - A southwest Ohio couple has been convicted of misdemeanor animal cruelty charges after the deaths of two horses.
The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that a Butler County jury in Oxford deliberated about an hour Monday evening before reaching the verdict.
Kenneth and Debora Morgan of the Hamilton area will be sentenced Thursday. They face a possible penalty of up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
The Morgans don't have a listed telephone number and no attorney name was available in court records.
