CALIFORNIA -- A Lake Los Angeles husband and wife were sentenced Thursday to three months in jail and ordered to perform three months of community service for neglecting one of their horses.
Bryanm Eichholtz, 47, and Susan Eichholtz, 46, pleaded no contest in March to a felony count of animal cruelty. They also were placed on probation for five years.
The couple entered pleas during a break in their preliminary hearing after a pathologist testified that the horse probably starved to death, prosecutors said.
