LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) - Three former employees of the Davidson County animal shelter have been indicted on cruelty charges.

Multiple media outlets reported that the grand jury returned charges Tuesday against former director Marsha Williams, Marissa Lea Sutudivant and Dana Lenelle Williams-King.

Each of the women faces one felony count of cruelty to animals.

Marsha Williams also faces two counts of obstruction of justice and one count of possession of a controlled substance and maintaining a dwelling for keeping a controlled substance.

Davidson County prosecutors were not sure if the indictments had been served against the women.

Marsha Williams’ lawyer, Duane Bryant, would not talk about the charges.

Guilford County officials are also investigating their shelter. Both shelters were run by the United Animal Coalition, whose license has now been pulled by state officials.
