HIGHLANDS -

A man accused of leaving a dog to drown in a cage in Highlands is out of jail this morning.

Police say Aaron Davis will now go to trial on charges of animal cruelty.

A person walking her own dog in Veterans Memorial Park spotted the abandoned dog in July and rescued it from the rising tide.

A state appellate court overturned a ruling that said Davis should remain in jail until his trial date.
