Fugitive indicted for killing and burning a dogPosted: Updated:
A homeless fugitive has been indicted by a Westchester grand jury for killing and burning a dog.
Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino Jr. says Ian De Los Reyes, 33, stabbed and beat a black Labrador retriever to death, last month inside a Greenburgh home. The dog's body was then burned in a backyard fire pit.
Authorities say the animal’s charred remains and a stash of meth were found after the dog's owner reported the death to police.
De Los Reyes is a fugitive from North Carolina and Utah where charges are pending.
The dog’s owner, Danilo Tolentino, also faces charges.
