Woman In SAU Horse Theft To Be Tried For Rustling
A woman already serving a prison sentence in the theft of rodeo horses from Southern Arkansas University is to be tried in a separate cattle theft case.
Trial is to begin Monday in Little River County for Wendi Cox. She is accused of stealing 15 heifers worth more than $10,000 from an East Ogden Ranch.
Prosecutors say the animals were sold at an Idabel, Okla., stockyard. The Texarkana Gazette reports Prosecutor Bryan Chesshir offered Cox a plea bargain but she rejected the deal and asked for a bench trial.
Cox is already serving a 60-year prison sentence after she was convicted in March of stealing five rodeo team horses and equipment from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia. The horses were found in Oklahoma, one of them dead.
