OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A 32-year-old Omaha man is under arrest, accused of fatally beating a dog.

A news release from the Nebraska Humane Society says Brian Booker was taken into custody on Thursday morning, charged in an arrest warrant with felony animal cruelty.

The agency says a woman who had an argument with Booker on Sept. 28 left her house and her dog in Booker’s care that day. The agency says that when she returned that evening, her dog had died. A necropsy showed the 5-year-old Pomeranian had been bruised and had died from blunt force trauma to its head.

Douglas County Jail records say Booker is in custody. Online court records don’t list the name of his attorney in the case.
