BROWNSVILLE - The ASPCA has arrested a Brownsville man on animal cruelty charges for allegedly starving three dogs, one of which died.

The agency responded to a tip in October and found one dog dead and chained up outside Rogelio Prince's residence. Two other dogs, Spice and Pumpkin, were found emaciated.

The two dogs have gained weight and are doing much better.

Prince was arrested Sunday without incident. He is charged with three counts of animal cruelty.
