Roy Edward Bromley, whose address is listed as 3215 S. 144th Ave. in 78th District Court records, is charged with cruelty to an animal causing death, which is punishable by up to one year in jail. The incident occurred May 3 in Hart Township, said Oceana County Assistant Prosecutor Kevin Harrington. .
