Cordele, GA (WALB) –   A Cordele man is accused of viciously killing a dog while burglarizing his neighbor's house.

There are new details on the story we told you about last week. 27-year-old John Frank Dunlap is charged with burglary and aggravated cruelty to animals, both felonies.

Police say Dunlap broke into Michael Shirah's home August 21st, and stabbed his ten year old toy poodle 'Sheila' at least four times with a pair of scissors.

A TV, game system, money and jewelry were stolen. Police say they found all Shirah's stolen items in Dunlap's home.

Dunlap is being held in the Crisp County jail. Shirah's friends say his arrest has helped Shelia's owners with their grief.
