WILBURTON, Oklahoma -- A Wilburton couple charged with child neglect and animal cruelty is headed to trial.

The couple, Anne and Shane Duhon were in a Latimer County courtroom Tuesday for their preliminary hearing.

A judge said there was enough evidence to bound both over for trial.

In June, the Latimer County Sheriff's Office seized nearly 80 animals from the couple on cruelty complaints.
