A Wisconsin man is accused of neglecting 178 cats and keeping dead kittens wrapped in foil in his refrigerator.

Allan C. Roach faces 20 misdemeanor charges. He was charged earlier this week with 10 counts of failure to maintain adequate sanitation for an animal, and 10 counts of failure to maintain adequate ventilation for an animal.

The case dates back to June 2008 when the cats were found in a home Roach used to share with his brother in Fond du Lac. Prosecutors say they delayed charging Roach in part because they were short-staffed.

The criminal complaint says many of the cats were missing patches of fur or were skinny.

A telephone number for the 57-year-old Roach, now of Portage, could not be found Saturday.
