A Mobile musician was charged with aggravated animal cruelty Thursday after admitting to police she left a fatally injured horse tied to a tree in downtown Mobile.

Yolanda Jones, 34, who sings with the band Crowned Jewelz, handed herself into Mobile Metro Jail at around 3.30 p.m.

The horse’s legs fell through the floor of its trailer while it was in transit Oct. 31, according to a Mobile Police Department press release. Police say the vehicle continued moving before Jones pulled over and left the horse on the 700 block of St. Francis Street, close to the Mobile Fire Department building downtown.

The horse’s rear legs were so badly injured the horse had to be euthanized, say police.

“A veterinarian was contacted and responded to the scene and did euthanize the animal because of the severity of the injuries,” said the press release.

Aggravated animal cruelty is a class C felony and carries a minimum one year sentence.
