A Beaufort County man and woman are accused of letting their dog starve to death on the back porch of a home.
Laquanda Latham and Anthony Price are charged with felony cruelty to animals.
Deputies say back on December 18th they found a dead boxer mix dog tied to the back porch of a home on Big Buck Drive in Chocowinity. A necropsy done in Raleigh showed the dog died from starvation.
Latham turned herself into the Magistrate's Office on Wednesday and was released on a $1,000 secured bond. The next day Price also went to the Magistrate's Office to answer the charge and he was released on a $10,000 unsecured bond.
