WAXAHACHIE (AP) - A North Texas woman convicted in the starving deaths of two horses was sentenced to a year in jail.

A judge in Waxahachie later suspended the sentence and put 52-year-old Barbara Renee Lee of Denton on community supervision for a year.

Lee must also pay a $2,500 fine, serve 30 days in jail as part of her supervision and has been barred from owning any more horses.

An Ellis County jury on Wednesday convicted Lee of cruelty to animals over the horse deaths when she lived in Red Oak. Two other malnourished horses were rescued.

Prosecutors on Thursday said that Lee testified she believed she did nothing wrong.
