ND woman charged with horse deaths has seizure

VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — A rural Kathryn woman charged with the deaths of eight horses had a seizure in court and was taken to a hospital.

KOVC Radio reports that Ginger Helland appeared in court on Tuesday. She is awaiting trial on charges of animal neglect, animal abuse and improper disposal of animal carcass.

Judge Jay Schmitz called for emergency workers to assist the woman, who began shaking uncontrollably with a seizure.

Barnes County State's Attorney Carl Martinek says the trial for Helland will be reset and witnesses will be recalled later.
