CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) – A Corinth man faces a January court date on federal charges he killed owls and hawks.

Frederick Corder, 53, is accused of trapping the predatory birds on a hunting plantation in Marshall County.

The federal indictment says Corder and another man captured and killed between 40 and 160 birds from October 2010 to January 2015.

The indictment says the birds were trapped to protect the quail population on the 1,800-acre Cedar Oak Plantation.

Corder is charged with one count of conspiracy to capture and kill migratory birds and eight counts of killing migratory birds.

He will make an initial appearance in federal court on the charges on January 11.
