A man wanted in an animal cruelty case turned himself in early Wednesday at the Oklahoma County jail, authorities report.

Corey Marion Harrison, 26, was jailed on animal cruelty charges, police reported.

Authorities were looking for Harrison after a pair of emaciated dogs were found abandoned in a Midwest City apartment.

One of the dogs — a 6-month-old puppy — died Monday, unable to recover from numerous medical complications, a pet rescue official said.

Harrison was charged Friday in Oklahoma County District Court with two counts of animal cruelty. An arrest warrant was issued Tuesday.

In 2010, Harrison was convicted in Oklahoma County District Court of misdemeanor domestic abuse against a woman he knew was pregnant, according to records on the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network website. He received a one-year deferred sentence.
