A Camden man has been arrested after an investigation into the mistreatment and subsequent death of his dog.

The Oneida County Sheriff's Office says 25-year old Ian West was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals -- a felony.

The Australian Shepard mix named "Lainey" was taken from West's home last week and died on Monday.

The dog was found outside in a cage, severely emaciated, police said.
