At the scene, deputies found two dead cats, two emaciated cats that required medical care, and six untended rabbits, all left without food or water.

Deputies were assisted by the Susquehanna Animal Shelter with medical care and housing for the animals.

Marland was charged with 10 counts of torturing, and injuring animals, and failure to provide food.  She was remanded to the county jail, and is scheduled to appear April 11 in Milford Town Court.
