DUNN COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) A Dunn County woman who is accused of neglecting horses was ordered to stand trial.
Darleen Freiheit, 75, appeared in Dunn County Court Tuesday. In December, she pleaded not guilty to two charges of mistreating an animal causing death and nine counts of intentionally mistreating animals.
The Dunn County Sheriff's Department says it received several calls about the horses before deputies checked on them in April 2013.
They found four dead horses and about a dozen others that appeared to be malnourished.
A September trial date has been set.
