BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty last year to mistreating animals in the deaths of more than 100 horses in Burleigh and Morton counties has been sentenced to a year in jail for violating probation.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1uZERpz ) that Kiefer began serving his sentence on Wednesday.

Kiefer pleaded guilty last year to mistreating animals and was sentenced to six months in custody and two years of probation. He was accused this past summer of violating probation terms by buying a horse and having a horse and a mule in the backyard of his Fargo home.

Judge Thomas Schneider imposed a six-month sentence in each of Kiefer’s cases, and at the request of Morton County prosecutor Gabrielle Goter ordered that the sentences be served consecutively.
