An Ohio woman is accused of a particular cruel act which resulted in the starvation death of a dog named Reggie. As reported by the Springfield News Sun, 34-year-old Ashley Leslie moved out of her rented home in Springfield, leaving Reggie, a terrier mix, in a locked bedroom – the dog starved to death.

The horror was revealed after a Clark County animal control officer visited the residence on Morton Drive following the report of the strong odor of death.

“(A witness) stated that he was in the process of evicting his tenant Ashley Leslie and had gone to the residence on April 10 due to the gas being shut off,” the affidavit says. “(The witness) stated when he got to the residence he could smell a strong odor of something dead from the door. (The witness) stated that he entered the home on April 12 and found a small deceased dog in the front bedroom of the home.”

When confronted, Leslie claimed that she was evicted by her landlord, but was coming back to care for her dog. Dog food bowls and water dishes were discovered outside of the closed bedroom door, but Reggie had no access to them.

The incident has resulted in multiple charges, including three counts of cruelty to companion animal and abandoning animals.

    What a liar! If she was coming back to care for the dog, the dog would be alive and well! I’m for putting her in a cage and forgetting to feed her! It’s about time these morons receive the same as what they give!

    OMG!!! That poor furbaby!!! IMHO anyone who could murder a helpless, trusting furbaby could do the same to a human……
    The disgusting cruel POS who murdered this precious little treasure MUST be locked up forever (only way to keep all of the rest of us safe), only leaving prison in a pine box. This POS will burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… hope they get there ASAP after dying a horrible death alone, afraid, in pain and (worst of all), unloved….. Absolutely NO ?’s about their fate……

    Precious treasure your life was stolen from you (& your life mattered). You absolutely did NOT deserve to be treated so cruelly…… I am absolutely heartbroken for your trauma & death.

    Makes me sick inside to think of this precious furbaby suffering……

    Precious treasure please look for MacKitty in Heaven and he will welcome you into his snuggle buddies group. You can RIP amongst his loving friends……..
