A Glendale Heights couple is facing animal cruelty charges after a dog froze to death when it was left outside on a porch at a Northlake home.

Jonathan Flores-Barona, 26, and his wife, Monica Alanas, 21, were charged with misdemeanor cruel treatment to an animal, according to Northlake police.

The dog was left outside on Dec. 28 after the couple had an argument, leading Flores-Barona to take Alanas’s belongings and the dog to her family’s home in Northlake, police said. The next morning, the year-and-a-half-old Shih Tzu was found frozen to death after being left on the porch overnight.

Both were scheduled to appear in court Feb. 20 in Maywood.
