Rowell trial set for Oct. 14


A jury trial for Deborah Beatrice Rowell of Pine River, who is charged in Cass County District Court with animal neglect, is slated for Monday, Oct. 14.

Documents from the Cass County Attorney’s Office say the case was originally scheduled for an Oct. 8 jury trial, but on Oct. 3 Judge David Harrington recused himself from the case. Judge Jana Austad then recused herself from the case because she is being listed as a witness by Rowell’s attorney.
