      Animal cruelty case ends

      LOVINGSTON - A judge ordered a woman charged with animal cruelty to
      undergo counseling and refrain from keeping animals Wednesday after
      animal control officers found an underfed horse and about 50 dogs at her
      home with little food and water.

      Nelson County animal control officers said they will work with local
      agencies to find homes for the dogs, which were still living at the
      woman’s home before the judge’s decision.

      Rebecca Rinker was one of three members of New Prospect Baptist Church
      in Amherst County who showed up at the Nelson County courthouse to
      support Eileen Patricia Ackworth, 55, who is a member of the church’s
      congregation.

      “She knows all those dogs’ names and personalities,” Rinker said.

      In mid-January, animal control officers received a call from someone
      reporting possible animal neglect at a house on Grandma Hill Road that
      straddles Amherst and Nelson counties and belongs to Ackworth.
