(Lancaster) _ A man from Pennsylvania's Amish country is headed to trial in a drive-by shooting that killed a horse pulling a buggy with five people inside.
The sister of 22-year-old defendant Timothy Antonio Diggs Jr. testified Thursday that her brother said he shot the horse ``for fun.''
The Lancaster County man is charged with reckless endangerment, cruelty to animals and a weapons offense.
His formal arraignment is April 11.
An Amish man told police Nov. 23 that as a car passed his buggy he heard a firecracker noise but continued to his farm, unaware the noise was a gunshot.
Upon arriving home he discovered his horse was shot in the side. The horse died before a vet arrived.
The Amish couple and their three young children in the buggy weren't hurt
