Woman appears in court over Granville animal abuse

A woman accused of abusing dozens of animals was in Granville Court on Monday.

This court appearance was to determine how much Wendy Murphy, 54, would have to pay for the care horses from her property have received since being rescued.

A judge is expected to make a decision on Thursday.

State police executed a search warrant on Wendy Murphy’s property in September. They say they found dozens of horses deprived of food.

Murphy was charged with 31 counts of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals.
