    accused of cruelty

    RICHFORD A father and daughter are accused of animal cruelty after Vermont State Police said they found two emaciated dogs in a camper at their Richford home.

    Randall J. Sheperd, 52, and Casey A. Sheperd, 19, were arrested Friday on charges of animal cruelty.

    Police said the dogs were in a camper without food or water. Temperatures were in the single digits.

    A veterinarian estimated that the animals were within 24 hours of death.

    The Sheperds have been cited to appear in court in February.
