Police say a Sandy Springs man killed his girlfriend's dog and then beat her with the dead animal's body.
A story in The Huffington Post followed up on the crime story. It says Alfredo Tadeo, 27, and Andrea Armintrout, 40, in June were visited by police on a domestic violence complaint.
The officers found that the dog had been brutally kicked to death, after he had beat Armintrout in the face and then sought out her dog, who was said to be cowering under a table.
"He kicked and stomped the dog," Capt. Steve Rose told The Huffington Post. "She grabbed the dog from him and he grabbed it back and took the dog outside. When he came back in he said he had snapped the dog's neck. He then took the dog by the back legs and actually started hitting her with the dog. When the officers got there the dog was dead."
