A judge in Santa Fe is expected to decide Monday, Jan. 13, 2014, whether the Roswell company can start slaughtering horses. State District Judge Matthew Wilson is hearing a request from Attorney General Gary King to issue a preliminary injunction against Valley Meat Co. King has filed suit against the company, alleging its operations would violate state environmental and food safety laws. (AP Photo/Jeri Clausing, File)
