UPDATE: WOOD CO (KYTX) - A Wood County man has turned himself into authorities and is jailed on a charge of felony animal cruelty (cruelty to non-livestock animals/ torture).

26-year-old Jared Michael Williams of Hawkins was arrested Friday after being sought by Wood County Sheriff Deputies in connection with an animal cruelty case that allegedly occurred at Holly Lake Ranch.

Williams is one of two people charged with the incident. 20-year-old Johnny Joe Munoz also of Hawkins was arrested January 8, 2014 and charged with felony animal cruelty. Both men are being held each on a $10,000 bond.

On January 7, 2014, a deputy was dispatched to Holly Lake Ranch in reference to an aggressive dog complaint by Holly Lake Security.

Deputy David Hitt was assisted by Sgt. Jacob Richardson in an investigation that resulted in felony animal cruelty charges being filed against both men.
