Shelby County Sheriff's Office arrests woman for animal cruelty

SHELBY COUNTY, TX (KTRE) - The Shelby County Sheriff's Department has arrested a woman involved in the alleged animal neglect case in Timpson.

Marian Feinauer, of Houston, was arrested Friday and charged with cruelty to livestock animals, which is a misdemeanor.

In a previous interview with KTRE, Feinauer explains how she was hired to take care of the animals on the property, belonging to Daniel and Virginia Sweeney. Feinauer said she did not have the ability to care for all the animals on the property.

"It's not my fault. I had no transportation, and no money," Feinauer said in a previous interview. "How was I supposed to take care of these animals if he's not bringing me enough food?"

Feinauer bonded out of jail immediately after the arrest.
