DECATUR, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A trial date is set for an Adams County man accused of neglecting more than two-dozen horses.
Rick Hill is charged with one count of "cruelty to an animal". After 37 horses were taken from his property outside of Decatur in August.
Authorities removed the horses after neighbors complained the animals were too thin and were not receiving proper care.
Hill's trial is set for January 4th.
Prosecutors say the horses will be moved from the Adams County Fairgrounds. Where they've been receiving care from volunteers.
And they say county officials could take applications from residents to own the horses.
No word on when those applications would be accepted.
