Kimberly Freemon, 31, was arrested yesterday morning for the intentional killing of her boyfriend's dog, Sara, back on November 22, 2012, according to police reports obtained by FOX 17 News. The offense is considered a misdemeanor.
Freemon had taken her boyfriends truck and dog at around 6 a.m. that morning, so he walked toward Madison Park where she often walked the dog to see if she was there, according to police. Freemon drove the truck out of the park and in his direction, but then drove off.
When the boyfriend returned home, Freemon was there with the truck. He asked where the dog was, and she said, "She's gone."
According to the affidavit, the boyfriend discovered that the bed of the truck was bloody. He went to the dumpster where Freemon parked the truck and found his dog lying on the ground with its throat cut. The bloody box cutter was found inside the cab. He later found her clothes that Freemon was wearing during the incident covered with blood.
Freemon was taken away for medical evaluation.
She is being held in the Davidson County Jail on $75,000 bond, which also includes a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Houston brother will be his own attorney in court
June 18, 2013 13:02 GMT
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Roane County man will face federal gun violation charges next month without an attorney.
The Knoxville News Sentinel (http://bit.ly/17VlXpM ) reported Rocky Joe Houston will represent himself on a charge of possession of a gun by a felon.
The charge came after Houston earlier represented himself in state court on charges stemming from a police chase. He was convicted of evading arrest and reckless endangerment.
Houston and his brother, Leon Houston, were tried, but not convicted, in the 2006 shooting deaths of a Roane County deputy and his ride-along companion.
In federal court, Rocky Joe Houston is claiming the officer who charged him with the felony had no legal authority.
