The man accused of fatally harming a three-month-old puppy will face a judge Monday morning.

John-Charles was charged with aggravated cruelty following the incident.
Police say it all started after the dog defecated on a blanket and that a witness intervened to stop the attack. Sadly, the dog suffered injuries so severe that it had to be euthanized.
