Man Indicted in Ohio K-9's Shooting Death

March 03, 2016  | 

The 22-year-old man accused of killing Canton (OH) Police Department dog Jethro and firing gunshots at city officers has been indicted on a slew of charges and faces up to 57 years in prison, reports the Canton Repository.

Kelontre D. Barefield was indicted Tuesday by a Stark County grand jury on charges of aggravated robbery, two counts of felonious assault, assaulting a police dog, harassing a police dog, and breaking and entering, said Stark County Prosecutor John D. Ferrero. Several firearm specifications are attached to the charges.

Barefield is accused of fatally shooting Jethro following a burglary around 1:15 a.m. on Jan. 9 at Fishers Foods on Harrison Avenue SW. The 3-year-old German shepherd was shot multiple times and died a day later from the injuries. Barefield was shot in the ankle while exchanging gunfire with police.

Good, Justice is served! This idiot deserves it. I do think that if the guy gets 57 years for killing a K-9, he should get a death sentence for killing a Police Officer.
