Divorcing Indiana couple left dog to starveApril 26, 2019
By The Associated Press
GREENWOOD — Authorities say a suburban Indianapolis couple who vacated their home amid divorce proceedings left their dog behind to starve to death.
After the emaciated dog, named Chuck, was found dead in January in the couple’s Johnson County trailer home, a necropsy determined he starved to death.
The Indianapolis Star reports that 31-year-old Michael S. Setser of Greenwood is jailed on a misdemeanor charge of abandonment or neglect of a vertebrate animal.
Deputies are searching for 28-year-old Amanda Setser of Franklin. She faces a misdemeanor animal cruelty charge.
Prosecutors say the pair “failed to take Chuck with them or provide him with food and water” when they moved out of their home in January amid their divorce.
Online court documents don’t list attorneys who could speak on the estranged couple’s behalf.
