Man charged in killing ex’s dogs wants bond loweredOctober 29, 2018
By The Associated Press
PETERSBURG — A southwestern Indiana judge is weighing whether to reduce the bond of a man who is accused of killing and burning his ex-girlfriend’s two dogs.
A Pike County judge heard testimony Wednesday about 28-year-old Jordan Hunt’s request to have his $350,000 bond lowered.
The Hazelton man has been in custody since Sept. 26 on charges of intimidation, animal cruelty and killing a domestic animal. He’s accused of entering the Evansville home of a woman whom he formerly dated and taking her golden doodle and pit bull-lab mix.
Their burned remains were found about 40 miles north of Evansville.
The Princeton Daily Clarion reports Hunt’s defense attorney says his client’s $350,000 bond is excessive for the charges he’s facing.
But county prosecutor Sarah Christianson says it’s an “excessive crime.”
