Putnam Valley man charged with kicking, killing neighbor's dog
A Putnam Valley man was charged Tuesday with kicking and killing his neighbor?s dog.
The Sampson's thought their 15-year-old German Shepard, Roxi, died of natural causes. They say they were horrified to learn their 40-year-old neighbor, Frank Aquino, allegedly kicked Roxi when she wandered into his back yard.
Aquino faces felony charges of criminal cruelty to animals. If convicted, he could spend up to two years behind bars. The Sampson?s say they plan to file a civil suit against Aquino.
