ANIMAL NEGLECT: Williams Pleads Not Guilty
A Storm Lake woman says she’s not guilty of 15 counts of animal neglect, police say otherwise.
In early December, police were called to the home of 42-year-old Dawn Williams on a possibly burglary.
Once inside, police found the skeletal remains of 15 cats and a large amount of animal feces throughout the home.
Authorities say Williams abandoned the property 6 months earlier and left the animals locked inside.
Her trial is now set for April in Buena Vista County.
