Pair accused of abandoning Fulton County dogs due in court

Ten dogs investigators say were mistreated and abandoned in Fulton County now have new homes.

Meantime, the two people accused of mistreating and abandoning animals were expected in Ephratah Town Court on Thursday evening.

Police say Harvey Martz and Laurie Murray left several Shih Tzu’s, goats, and cats on a property they hadn’t been living in for a year.

Murray is also facing charges out of Amsterdam. Police say she took money from a homeowner to do construction work and then did not do any work on the property.
