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.

    "non anonymous", it sounds like your statement is your endorsement of this man's cruel and psychotic behavior towards innocent horses because he BELIEVED his wife was cheating. If you are, you are just as bad as the idiot who performed this heinous act. I'm sorry, did the horses make them cheat, if they even did? I would guess not, and this guy is just a hot-headed psycho with no self control. You apparently are yet another person who feels that vigilante justice is the way to handle things when it's so not, and especially regarding domestic matters. Also, if you were truly "non anonymous", you'd have posted an actual name; you, unfortunately, are just another fool playing rabid keyboard jockey without the guts to back up your own words, instead staying hidden behind the scenes - a sign of a small, weak minded man, IMO.

    When you mess with another man's wife, I'll guarantee you something bad is gonna happen. Wives are off limits including mine.

    WHAT A SCUMBAG! Sad that people have lost their self control and dont know how to handle life! why didnt he take the knife to himself!? And spare everyone the heartbreak and pain. If this is any inclination of what type of man he was, no wonder he suspected someone of cheating on him. She should have RAN along time ago. (yeah I know..Iam not hearing both sides) but it's just how I feel due to the killing of innocent animals)
