BURLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - A judge has dismissed harassment charges that were filed against a Burlington woman after she admitted sending cow manure to a neighbor.

The Hawk Eye reports (https://bit.ly/1K5Wi0Q) Des Moines County Attorney Amy Beavers filed a motion Monday to dismiss criminal harassment charges against Kim Capdevilia. The charges were filed after Capdevilia acknowledged to Burlington police that she paid a company to send the manure to her neighbor in December.

The action was prompted by a dispute over a barking dog.

A judge dismissed the case after receiving Beavers’ motion, which explained that the state might not be able to prove the allegations.

The neighbors also have filed civil lawsuits against each other.
