Trial in Md. dog shooting starts Friday
The differing accounts of what happened at the Quail Run community's dog park are scheduled to be aired Friday in an Annapolis courtroom, The Baltimore Sun reports.
A judge is to decide if Keith Elgin Shepherd, 32, a civilian police officer for the Army in Northern Virginia, is guilty of animal cruelty and firing his gun near homes, or if the shooting of the husky dog named "Bear-Bear" owned by Ryan and Rachel Rettaliata was justified. Shepherd's lawyer said he was protecting himself, his wife and pet, a German shepherd named Asia.
