CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - A Petersburg Fire Department captain is set to face a Chesterfield judge Thursday.

36 year old Jeff Ivey is scheduled to appear in court on a number of charges including ill treatment of animals.

Back in January, Animal Control officers found eight dogs abandoned at a Chesterfield home.

Four of them were dead; the others described as thin and sickly.

Ivey is on administrative leave from the Petersburg Fire Department.
