Woman arrested after dead horses found on property

PHOENIX -- Authorities say a woman is in custody after four dead horses were found on her north Phoenix property.

Phoenix police received a call from an inspector checking on a report of a foul odor at the residence near Interstate 17 and Carefree Highway.

The inspector called police after 33-year-old Jennifer Irene Hinds allegedly refused to cooperate.

The inspector says he could smell the dead animals and saw a one horse lying on the other side of the fence under a piece of wood and plastic.

According to court documents, authorities also found 13 horses that were neglected.

KNXV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/14StVyI) a court order was served Thursday on Hinds.

She's being held on suspicion of four counts of killing a work service animal and 13 counts of cruelty to animals.
