On Monday, a grand jury in Blount County, Ky. indicted Fred Lee Wright for felony aggravated animal cruelty in the shooting of his neighbor's seven-month-old puppy last August reports The Daily Times.

The miniature Doberman Pinscher named Kyra was found lying dead in a pool of blood by sheriff's deputies in the owner's yard located on Cub Drive. One of the four kennels had been opened and the dog's collar had been broken.

Diane Stephens was Kyra's foster mother until the rescued dog could be placed in an adoptive home. Stephens and Wright were next door neighbors, and Wright had previously complained to Stephens the barking of the dogs at her home annoyed him.

Wright had threatened Stephens and her dogs previously, and in the past Wright had brandished a gun allegedly threatening the life of Stephens and her dogs.

A necropsy performed on Kyra indicated the dog died from multiple gun shot wounds. Wright also faces misdemeanor stalking charges.

Rest in peace Kyra.
