An Iowa woman convicted of dumping 23 dead or dying dogs in a south-central Nebraska cornfield in 2008 has been found with more dogs during a probation compliance check.

The Monona County Sheriff's Office says deputies checking up on
Denise Withee, of Mapleton, on Thursday found 13 dogs at the home
she shares with her mother - a violation of Withee's Nebraska
probation.

Deputies cited Withee and her mother on suspicion of animal
cruelty.

Withee said during her Nebraska animal cruelty trial that she
was taking the dogs someone in Nebraska when she became sick,
pulled over and passed out. She said that when she awoke, most of
the dogs were dead from the heat. She said she panicked and dumped them.

Withee could not be reached for comment.
