PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a man who was found with the body of his dog inside a Portland apartment Monday died of homicide.

Portland police say the Oregon State Medical Examiner determined that 59-year-old Eleazar “Tony” Herrera Villegas died of homicidal violence.

A Jack Russell terrier dog named Max found dead in the residence will have a necropsy performed at Oregon State University.

Police say Villegas lived at the apartment with his girlfriend. She is cooperating with investigators and is not a suspect.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
