(WDAY TV) -- The man accused of a mistreating, overworking and abandoning a herd of horses is now charged in two counties.

The latest charges filed Friday in Morton County. 63-year-old Bill Kiefer is accused of failing to provide necessary food, water and shelter for the horses.

157 horses were seized from two properties in late January, after authorities found 99 dead. 3 more have since died.

Tonight at 10, we check in on how some of the horses are doing, at new homes near Hawley.
