Fillmore County man charged with animal neglect pleads not guilty

PRESTON, Minn. (KTTC) -- A Fillmore County man charged with animal neglect pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.

80-year-old Wilbur Schmoll is accused of neglecting more than 50 horses, ponies and mules last year.

Investigators seized the animals from his farm near LeRoy.

Tuesday, the judge ordered a settlement conference so they can talk over the case and get a resolution from there.

If a resolution cannot be reached, the case will be sent to trial.

Schmoll is due back in court next month.
