41 Pets Found Dead After Pet Store Owner Abandons Store

A former pet shop owner is looking at the possibility of three years in prison after police say she left dozens of animals to die in her abandoned store.  McDonough County Prosecutors yesterday charged 38-year-old Jessica Spangler with felony animal cruelty.  Police say 41 animals died from a lack of food and water, and another 56 animals were rescued.  Spangler told police that she asked someone else to look in on the animals.  Investigators say her shop didn't have power for almost two weeks before the animals were discovered.
