MASON CITY – He stands accused of torturing a dog, leaving a child home alone, and beating up a woman, but says he’s innocent – and will soon stand trial.

Dacota Witham, age 26 has pled not guilty to a charge of animal torture and awaits a jury trial on October 7. He also pled not guilty to child endangerment and felony third or subsequent domestic assault and awaits an October 28 jury trial.

Witham allegedly left his 7-month-old daughter home alone earlier this month in addition to the felony charge of domestic abuse. In addition, he is accused of torturing a female dog named Kiara that police found stuffed in a bag inside his garage. After getting out of jail – briefly – he announced via social media that he is “getting a cat” along with a picture of an orange kitten.

Witham is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $5,000 bond.
