ARLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - An eastern Iowa couple faces animal neglect charges after malnourished horses were found on their property.

Cedar Rapids television station KCRG-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1C2RYGJ ) that Fayette County sheriff’s deputies executed a warrant Thursday at the Arlington home of Duane J. Landis and Margaret A. Landis. Authorities found five horses that were thin and malnourished.

Police say four of the horses belonged to the couple and the fifth belonged to a family member who does not live at the property. The couple gave up custody of their four horses and the fifth was returned to its original owner.

Authorities also located an unspecified number of animal carcasses on the property. The couple now faces charges of animal neglect and failure to dispose of dead bodies.
