DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a Florida man has been sentenced to 90 days in jail after animal services officials found a dog chained to a couch in a filthy home.

A judge in Volusia County sentenced 55-year-old Todd Nordman on Thursday.

He was charged with animal cruelty and unlawful confinement. The dog was found last year when a deputy came to the home to evict Nordham.

The home's owner had died and a relative was taking over the home. The dog, named Red, was covered in sores and parasites.

The dog has been fostered and is ready for adoption.
