LITTLE RIVER CO., AR (KSLA) -

A trial has been set for Wendi Cox, an Oklahoma woman convicted in March of horse theft who also is accused of stealing cattle in Little River County, Arkansas.

Cox was in court Tuesday in Ashdown, Arkansas, where she waived her rights to a trial by jury. Cox is scheduled for a bench trial that's set to start on Monday.

Cox already is serving a 60-year sentence for her part in the thefts of five horses from Southern Arkansas University stables. She will have to serve at least 10 before she is eligible for parole.

The horses, tack and trailer were taken from the Mulerider Stables at SAU-Magnolia in November 2011. Four of the horses were found abandoned two weeks later in rural McCurtain County. The remains of the fifth were found in early December. "Credit Card" had been shot, his throat was slit and he had been cut into pieces.
