Fort Wayne, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - The Fort Wayne couple accused of hoarding 100 cats in their home were in court Monday for their sentencing.

A judge ordered Constance Anderson, 50, and Jeffrey Tourney, 45, a one and half year sentence and 18 months probation, each.

Anderson and Tourney both admitted to their charges earlier in the month.

In June Animal Care and Control had to wear hazmat suits while removing nearly 100 cats from their Elmer Street home, and an additional 23 from another home they rented, 14 of which were found dead.
