LAKE WORTH —
A Glenview couple is set to appear in Cook County criminal court today (Friday) to answer charges of endangering the life of a child and companion animal hoarding.
Scott Corneliuson, 40, and Jennifer Corneliuson, 43, both of 3317 Lakewood Ct., Glenview, were taken into custody at the Glenview police station and charged Thursday before appearing at a hearing where a judge set bond at $25,000 ($2,500 cash) for each, Glenview police said.
Glenview police and DCFS officials reportedly found 35 dogs in the home as well as urine, feces and damage caused by dogs in an inspection of the Lakewood Court home last week that led to yesterday’s charges being filed, police said.
Court records obtained by the Journal said three children also lived in the home. Media reports say those children were between the ages of 3 and 5. Those children were placed with family members and the dogs are being relocated as part of a DCFS reaction plan.
Glenview and officers and DCFS officials were reportedly responding to a report of neglect.
Court records said dogs living in the house, “defecated and urinated throughout the interior of the home to include the children's beds and clothes” and said the parents were “unable to manage the dog excrement and waste (in the home).”..." More
