CLINTON, Maine (AP) — The owners of a central Maine horse farm are facing animal cruelty charges two months after state animal welfare agents seized 15 horses and other animals from the farm.

Thirty-four-year-old Brett Ingraham and his wife, 25-year-old Alexis Ingraham, are each charged with seven counts of animal cruelty. They own the Fair Play Farm in Clinton.

District Attorney Evert Fowle said the complaint alleges that the horses were deprived of necessary food, medical care and shelter and lived in unclean conditions.

The Ingrahams could not be reached for comment, but have previously denied the allegations.
