CENTREVILLE, Md. (AP) — The owner of a Centreville, Md., horse farm now faces more than 100 charges of animal cruelty.

Canterbury Farm owner Marsha Parkinson was charged earlier this year with 35 charges of failure to provide adequate care for an animal after horses were seized from her farm in late April.

The Star Democrat of Easton reports that the number of charges has been increased to 133. Parkinson allegedly failed to provide adequate food, water and shelter for the Polish Arabian horses at her 200-acre breeding farm.

Parkinson’s case is to be heard Dec. 8 in Queen Anne’s County District Court.
