Over 20 dogs found dead and dying in field in Nebraska

45 year-old Denise Withee of Mapleton, Iowa will face charges for animal abuse and abandonment after being accused of breeding dogs and then dumping them on the side of the road in Nebraska. Denise Withee has plead 'not guilty' to three counts of cruel neglect of animals.

With each count, Withee faces up to 5 years in jail and a $5,000 fine.

The charges stem from an August 1st incident, where 23 dogs were found dead or dying in a Grand Island cornfield.

Authorities linked the dogs to Withee through a microchip found in one of the animals.

Withee is facing additional charges in Iowa for 20 dogs that were found running at large and 27 more dogs that were found in two separate homes in Monona County, Iowa, said Sgt. Roger Krohn of the Monona County Sheriff's Department.

On July 31, 23 dogs were found dead or dying in the cornfield and 13 more were taken from Withee when she was arrested at a local motel Aug. 2. The hotel room had been paid for by Roland Bowling, according to the Hall County Sheriff's Department. Bowling is charged with being an accessory to a felony and providing false information to law enforcement. Bowling is associated with Denise Withee.

A pre-trial conference has been scheduled for January 28.
