Woman faces animal cruelty charges after farm animals seized

SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) - A woman has been charged with multiple counts of animal cruelty after authorities seized nearly 200 neglected animals from Connecticut farms. Suffield police said Monday that 35-year-old Rachel Kornstein, of Manchester, Connecticut turned herself in over the weekend. She faces six counts of cruelty to animals and is due in Superior Court on Feb. 18. Officials say they began investigating Kornstein after receiving complaints that farm animals under her care were being neglected. They found cows, dogs and poultry at three area farms she leased were severely emaciated and sick. Authorities say the animals were deprived food, water and medical attention.
