PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - A Prattville couple is now facing felony animal cruelty charges after not giving their dog food or water over a long period of time. Officials found the dog dead Wednesday at a home on Gardenia Road. It was still chained to a tree.

The suspects, Robert Daniel Kiddy, 23 and Susan Laverne Williams Kiddy, 29 could face from one to ten years in prison for the crime if convicted.

The couple, apparently separated, lived at different addresses, and the dog was left under Susan Kiddy's care.

Both suspects were arrested and placed in the Autauga Metro Jail on $15,000 bonds.

The cruelty charge is a Class C felony.
