Dim Crims: Revenge of the Shih Tzu

Posted on the 29 April 2014 by Hughvw

Dim Crims: Revenge of the Shih Tzu A New Jersey woman has admitted killing her neighbor's small dog by throwing it into traffic during an argument over a parking space.
The Star-Ledger of Newark reports that 27-year-old Haniyyah Barnes, of Newark, pleaded guilty Tuesday to breaking into her neighbor's home, grabbing the 2-year-old Shih Tzu named Honey Bey and throwing the dog into oncoming traffic where she was struck by a vehicle and killed.
Barnes pleaded guilty to burglary, animal cruelty and theft charges and Essex County prosecutors will recommend that she receive a six-year state prison term when she's sentenced July 14. Barnes also would have to pay up to $2,600 in restitution and would be barred from owning, buying or living with animals for 10 years.
A Newark police officer who was sitting in a patrol vehicle saw what happened and immediately arrested Barnes, who acknowledged in court that the neighbor had followed her outside, begging her to stop and not hurt the dog.
