COLUMBIA, Md. (AP) — A Columbia woman has been indicted on 69 counts of animal cruelty charges after 40 dead animals were found in a townhouse in January.
Elizabeth Lindenau, 40, was arrested Thursday night after the indictment was returned Wednesday. It was not known if she has a lawyer.
Authorities went to a townhouse on Jan. 16 after a property manager complained about an odor, and found dead birds, cats and rabbits.
