Guilty Plea After Horse Shootings

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- A 32-year-old Cedar Rapids man accused of shooting at least three horses in a Johnson County pasture has made a deal with prosecutors.
   Court records say Ryan Grafft on Tuesday pleaded guilty to livestock abuse and a firearms charge. Prosecutors dropped two other charges in return for Grafft's pleas. Grafft's trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday. His sentencing hearing date isn't listed in online court records.
   Investigators say Grafft fired a rifle at the animals from inside his truck as he passed by their pasture on Jan. 27. The owner of the horses told investigators that he didn't know Grafft and didn't know why someone would want to harm his animals.
