REDDING, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California woman has pleaded guilty to felony animal cruelty in connection to several starving horses, including one that was near death when it was found.

The Siskiyou County District Attorney’s Office said Friday Eleanor Saenz pleaded guilty in the Siskiyou County Superior Court.

The case against the 67-year-old woman began in 2013, when a neighbor called authorities to report horses that were malnourished and lacking care.

District Attorney Kirk Andrus says Saenz, her husband and her son were charged.

Charges were dropped against her husband because he was a dependent adult and her son, Ronald Saenz, pleaded guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty Oct. 27.

Eleanor Saenz’s sentencing is set for March 18.
