Search on for Man Charged with Killing Puppy in Oven
UPDATE 4/8/09 – Puppy Killer Arrested
In November, a Green Bay woman, Alex Rouse, arried home to a horrific discovery. Her home had been broken into and her 5 month-old Pekingese/poodle puppy named Hulk had been stuffed in the oven. Needless to say, Rouse was heartbroken. “That dog meant everything to me,” Rouse said. “That dog went everywhere with me.”
In February they believed they had identified the sick bastard who committed this heartless crime;
Green Bay police have collected DNA samples from an unnamed 31-year-old man who they believe was the heartless monster who did it. The man is the ex-boyfriend of Alex Rouse.
He was angry at her because of a recent break-up and wanted to get back at her. He also told friends that he hated the puppy because he was allergic to it.
In an interview at the end of January he told police that he was at Rouse’s home about an hour before she returned home to find the dog. He also told at least two friends, who verified the story, about going to the house and and putting the dog in the oven.
And now Alex Rouse’s ex-boyfriend, Terry Kleiman, has been identified and charged with the crime. Police are on the look out for him now so that he can be arrested.
According to the criminal complaint just filed against Kleiman, he’s threatened his ex-girlfriend, Alex, in the past. “If you ever hurt me, I will hurt you tenfold,” it states in the complaint. Kleiman further warned her, “If she ever did anything to him, he would kill her.” Alex was afraid for her life.
So, what was the motive for this heinous crime? According to the complaint, Kleiman said the he was allergic to the dog and the dog had put him through hell. He allegedly joked about killing the puppy and putting it in the oven. (NBC26)
If he’s found guilty, Kleiman faces a maximum of 16 years in prison and a $35,000 fine.
Now wouldn’t it be nice to see someone who could do something so heinous to actually be sentenced to that? I’m quite sure it will not happen but I can dream. He certainly deserves it!
