Accused horse killer appears in court

By From page B1 | July 17, 2013

A man accused of killing a horse and attempting to steal another appeared in court for a short hearing Monday morning to change hearing dates.

Clifford Safranski, representing Bryon Baker, said the Public Defender’s Office had not received any files or petitions regarding Baker, though he was aware of a second petition.

A preliminary hearing on July 17 was converted to a pre-preliminary hearing by Judge Douglas C. Phimister, who noted that a second case against Baker regarding his post-release supervision would have no bail.

Baker faces charges of grand theft of a horse, cruelty to animals causing suffering and/or death, attempted theft of a second horse and sexual assault on the second horse.
