Indiana Couple Charged in Dead, Starving Animals Case

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) _ The owners of a central Indiana farm where investigators found the carcasses of more than 100 animals alongside starving livestock are facing dozens of felony counts in the case.
Madison County prosecutors on Tuesday filed 96 counts of improper disposal of dead animals against Daniel and Carrie Ault. The couple also face 15 misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals.
The charges come after authorities found 171 carcasses of horses, chickens, turkeys, rabbits, cats and dogs at the couple's Summitville farm. Investigators said 30 malnourished animals were skeletal from starvation.
The Aults also face two counts of neglect of a dependent. Madison County Sheriff Ron Richardson says the family had been living in part of a barn converted into living quarters.
