PRESTON, Minn. (KTTC) -- Trial dates are set for the Fillmore County man accused of neglecting more than 50 horses, ponies and mules.

A pre-trial hearing took place Tuesday to work out the details for a jury trial for Wilbur Schmoll on Nov. 21 and 22.

In May, the 81-year-old pleaded not guilty to 26 counts of animal negligence including improper disposal of animal carcasses.

Investigators seized the animals from his farm near LeRoy last year.
