JONESBORO, Ark. -- One of two men suspected of grilling and eating a stolen dog surrendered to police Wednesday, and immediately plead not guilty of the crime.
 
Matthew Harden, 18, is facing charges of animal cruelty and theft of property of less than $500, for the alleged abduction of a dog, beating it to death, grilling it, and consuming it on or about June 7.
 
Harden also plead not guilty to the charges Wednesday before District Judge Ray Spruel. Both charges are Class A misdemeanors.
 
Harden is free on bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for August 22.
 
As of Wednesday afternoon, the other suspect in the case, Ron Nick Allison, remains at large. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.
 
Police investigators also located the head of the chow-breed dog late Tuesday afternoon. A police tip led detectives to a vacated residence at 1315 South Main Street in Jonesboro.
 
The head was found in shallow water in a swimming pool behind the residence. It was photographed as evidence, and then destroyed by Jonesboro Animal Control.
