PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The owners of Green Acre Boarding kennel in Gilbert were back in court Thursday morning for another status hearing.

Judge Michael Kemp ordered Jessie Hughes and Malesia Hughes to return to court at 8:30 a.m. May 6.

They are charged with one count of fraud schemes.

Animal cruelty charges against the couple in connection with the deaths of 23 dogs were dismissed three months ago.

The dogs were found dead last summer at Green Acre Dog Boarding after suffocating in a small room without air conditioning.

The couple reportedly lied to the dogs' owners and never called for a veterinarian or police after finding all the dogs dead.
