Kathleen Marshall was the only one home when the search warrant was served because her husband has been hospitalized. The case was referred to Adult Protective Services (APS) which already has an open case on the couple.
Charges are pending the results of the veterinary evaluation.
This is one of the first big investigations for the Sheriff's Department M.A.S.H. unit since former Sheriff Joe Arpaio left office. The MCSO truck at the scene still had Apraio's name on the side, however, a caricature of his face had been removed.
