Husband, sons plead not guilty in woman's death

Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Two men have pleaded not guilty to felony abuse charges in the death of their 73-year-old mother, whose body was found in Phoenix in the family van with dozens of bug-infested animals.

Their father was riding in the back of the van with his wife and he also pleaded not guilty at his arraignment Wednesday.

The next scheduled court appearances for 79-year-old Alva Stout, 44-year-old Gregory Stout and 42-year-old Alan Stout all are on Sept. 12.

The three men also are facing 34 counts of animal cruelty.

Phoenix police say the family's van was carrying 12 dogs, 22 cats and a pigeon when Lola Mae Stout was found dead July 14.

The charge of vulnerable adult abuse says the three defendants put Lola Stout in circumstances that endangered her health.
