Email

A 23-year-old man on the lam after being accused of felony-level animal cruelty may be in Denver, where a warrant for his arrest does not allow for extradition.

Benjamin James Stavaas of Battle Lake, Minn., faces six charges - two felonies - linked to an alleged admission to slitting the throat of his dog in a fit of rage this summer. After he missed a court date on July 26, an arrest warrant was issued.
