FOREST LAKE, Minn., Jan. 18 (UPI) -- A Minnesota man who allegedly put alligators in a lake last summer was charged Friday in the shooting deaths of a neighbor's horses, a complaint showed.

William Henry St. Sauver Jr., 30, of Forest Lake is accused in the criminal complaint of killing two horses and burying them in a cornfield, the (Minneapolis) Star Tribune reported.

St. Sauver is charged with two felony counts of mistreatment and torture of animals. He is to appear in Washington County District Court Feb. 27.

St. Sauver allegedly had told the owner of the horses Nov. 10 he had found the horses dead and buried them.

St. Sauver and his father had been charged with misdemeanor counts last September for allegedly keeping alligators at their Scandia farm, the newspaper said. Those charges came after a game warden got an alligator spotted by people fishing on Goose Lake.
