The ex-wife of imprisoned assassin James Earl Ray was arrested and her house condemned when authorities found 25 live animals and several dead ones inside it.

Officers were called to the home of Anna Sandhu Ray on Sunday to investigate a report of an injured person and found Ray with a large cut on her face. Ray, 49, refused medical treatment, became unruly and was arrested, police said.

In her home, officers found 15 dogs, four cats and six kittens, in addition to the dead animals. The structure was condemned by city codes enforcement officers.


Ray’s ex-husband pleaded guilty to the 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis.
