A Jefferson Davis Parish couple were arrested over the weekend for cruelty to animals.
In March, deputies observed a horse down at a residence on Pitre road in Welsh. During the investigation, deputies found no feed or hay available to the animals. Authorities also learned that a second horse had died two weeks before and was removed by the landowners.
Jerome Earl Lavergne, 45, and Bridge Ann Lavergne, 38, are charged with Cruelty to animals.
Both are facing a future court date.
