DONNELLSON, Iowa (AP) - A southeast Iowa man has been charged with livestock neglect after more than two dozen horses were found without proper food or shelter.

The Daily Gate City in Keokuk reports the Lee County Sheriff's Department on Wednesday charged 55-year-old Jeffrey L. Graber, of Donnellson, with several offenses. He's charged with livestock neglect leading to death, improper disposal of a dead animal, and two counts of livestock neglect.

All the charges are misdemeanors.

Graber was charged after authorities searched two properties he owns.

Officials found numerous horses that suffered from a lack of care and food.

One horse was found dead. About 30 others now have access to food, water and shelter.

An attorney for Graber couldn't be found through online court records.
