MAGNOLIA, Ark. (KSLA) - Three people who were charged with stealing five horses and equipment from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia have pleaded guilty.
The incident happened in November 2011, when the horses were stolen from the rodeo team stables. Two weeks after they were stolen, four of the horses were found abandoned and tied to pine trees in rural McCurtain County Oklahoma, malnourished and dehydrated, but alive. The remains of the fifth were found in early December; another had been shot, his throat was slit and he had been cut into pieces.
