COVINGTON, Ky. - A man facing 175 charges in Kenton County’s second largest animal cruelty case is scheduled to face a jury Wednesday.
In July, authorities found 175 animals living at Randolph Brinkman’s property on Decoursey Pike in what authorities called "deplorable conditions."
According to reports, animals were living in cages that were too small and others were in cages with dead animals. Many of the animals were found without food or water.
The animals included chickens, roosters, rabbits, cats and dogs, according to reports.
All animals removed from Brinkman's property have been placed at different Northern Kentucky farms.
Brinkman is also facing cultivating marijuana charges. Reports say during the July search, authorities also found several marijuana plants on Brinkman's property.
Brinkman is scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 a.m.
