Kiefer pleads not guilty to mistreating horses

BISMARCK – A New Salem man accused of mistreating horses and mules has pleaded not guilty to four misdemeanor charges in Burleigh County.

William Kiefer, a longtime Fargo investment adviser, earlier this month pleaded not guilty to similar charges in neighboring Morton County.

Authorities seized more than 150 animals from Kiefer’s properties in the two counties in January after finding nearly 100 dead animals.
