ASHDOWN — A trial is scheduled for next week for an Oklahoma woman accused of stealing cattle in southwest Arkansas.

Wendi Cox appeared in court Tuesday in Ashdown where she waived her right to a trial by jury. Shreveport, La., television station KSLA reported that Cox is scheduled for a bench trial beginning Monday.

Cox is already serving a 60-year prison sentence after she was convicted in March of stealing five rodeo team horses and equipment from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia.

In the Little River County case, prosecutors accuse Cox of stealing 15 heifers worth more than $10,000 from a ranch in October 2011. The animals were later sold at stockyards in Idabel, Okla.

Cox has said she's innocent of the cattle theft charges.
