A 22-year-old woman is charged with two misdemeanors after dead dogs were allegedly found in a Lakeview apartment.
Christina Laskero is accused of cruelty to animals and failure to perform animal owner duties, police said.
On the Friday before Christmas, a building engineer who was working to fix a leak entered an apartment on the seventh floor at 505 West Belmont, according to court records and a police source.
Inside, the worker found “two dead dogs and deplorable conditions.”
Laskero is free on bond.
