A Chicago, Ill., man is being held in lieu of $150,000 bail following the alleged killing of his sister's dog, reported Sunday's Chicago Tribune.
On Thursday, 29-year-old Andres F. Duran allegedly attacked his sister's German shepherd with a knife; the dog did not survive the brutal assault.
Court records show that Duran stated to the police:
I lost control and started stabbing Diesel in the front bedroom,”
“I stabbed Diesel in the side and he was not dying fast enough so I stabbed him in the neck. Diesel bit me on the right arm.”
After the four-year-old dog died, Duran allegedly wrapped the body in a blanket, and then put the body into a suitcase which was moved outside to the yard.
According to the Sun-Times, Duran later heard his brother-in-law outside and locked himself in the house, with the knife in his hand.
I was waiting for him to get in with my knife in my hand,
I felt as if it would be an epic battle. Like fighting Satan.”
Duran did not engage his brother-in-law in a fight - instead, he eventually fled from the house; later, Duran turned himself over to the authorites at the Animal Crimes Team at Homan Square.
