Elk Grove village man accused of killing dog
An Elk Grove Village man is being held on $50,000 bond on allegations he fatally stabbed a family dog earlier this year in a village park, according to authorities.
Andrew J. Maynard, 18, of the 200 block of Victoria Lane, faces an aggravated cruelty to animal charge stemming from the April 21 stabbing, Elk Grove Village police Sgt. James Lancaster said.
Authorities say Maynard stabbed the dog in Audubon Park about 6 a.m. that morning. There had been an ongoing investigation since the stabbing, but charges weren't filed until two witnesses recently came forward and Maynard came in for questioning, Lancaster said.
Published reports indicate Maynard told authorities he believed the dog was possessed.
A spokeswoman for the Cook County State's Attorney's office said Maynard will appear in court again Tuesday in Rolling Meadows.
