Jealous Husband Accused of Killing Horses

JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Western Michigan authorities say a man who suspected his wife of cheating on him with a stable owner used a knife to kill two horses.
Ottawa County sheriff's Lt. Mark Bennett says the suspect argued with his wife Friday night at the property of the stable owner in Jamestown Township, about 10 miles southwest of Grand Rapids.
Bennett tells The Grand Rapids Press that the husband returned Saturday and killed the couple's quarter horse and the owner's Palomino.
Forty-seven-year-old Dennis Finkler of Conklin was arraigned Monday on animal cruelty charges. He has no listed telephone number and couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
