Woman Indicted By Grand Jury On Animal Cruelty Charges

Posted:

WARREN COUNTY, Tenn. - A grand jury has handed down animal cruelty charges against a Warren County woman accused of keeping more than 100 dogs living in squalor at a suspected puppy mill.

Wilma Jones faces 10 counts of animal cruelty, and five counts of possession of controlled substances.

Back in March, law enforcement officers and an animal rescue group seized more than 120 dogs from Jones' Centertown property.

They found most of the animals standing in filth, and suffering from infections, dehydration, and malnourishment.

She relinquished custody of all but four of the animals.
