MOORESBURG — A Bean Station man accused of abandoning a dog inside a home he moved out of last year was charged last week with cruelty to animals.

On Feb. 24, the Hawkins County Sheriff’s Office responded to a complaint of a dead dog found in the bedroom of a house at 1831 Slate Hill Road in Mooresburg that been sold recently at public auction.

The buyer told the HCSO that the previous occupant, William Charles Harville, 48, 355 Sanita Village, Bean Station, had left or abandoned the residence three to four months before she purchased the property.
