CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -- A local man faces charges after he is accused of torturing and beating a dog.
50-year-old Edwin Orabona is charged with Cruelty to Animals after police say he beat and tortured a beagle mix.
The dog was so badly hurt that it has to undergo surgery Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
Luckily, the SPCA already has a brand new home for the dog.
Orabona will be on trial March 7.
