GLENALLEN, Mo. - A Glenallen man faces charges of animal abuse and neglect after a horse starved to death and two other animals were found on his property in poor condition.

An autopsy showed the horse starved. It had dirt and rocks in its bowels.

Authorities say hay, water and feed were not provided to the animals.
