COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A Black Forest woman convicted of animal cruelty after authorities found the remains of 14 horses in a barn has been sentenced to 60 days in jail followed by five years of probation.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (https://goo.gl/RktmQk ) 63-year-old Sherri Brunzell was sentenced Thursday and was told she can no longer own, manage, possess, lease or care for any horses.
