Killeen , tx — A Killeen man is charged with burglary of a habitation with intent to commit a felony after he allegedly killed a dog after breaking into his ex-wife's house.
On October 19, officers were dispatched to the 4200 block of Telluride Drive, in reference to a burglary in progress. When they arrived at the home, the homeowner informed officials that her ex-husband had broken into the house and was still inside when her roommate arrived. When the roommate got home, she fled the house and called police.
Upon arriving, officers noticed smoke coming from a broken window. When the man exited the house, he was arrested, after he resisted. Officers found blood inside of the home and noticed a dead dog. Police officers then called the fire department, who came and extinguished the fire.
The Bell County District Attorney’s office reviewed this case, and is charging Ronald Amit Singh, 27, of Killeen with Burglary of a Habitation with Intent to Commit a Felony, which was Animal Cruelty.
Singh is also charged with the misdemeanors, such as Resisting Arrest and Assault with Bodily Injury (Family Violence). The assault charge is from an incident that was filed earlier in the day.
Signh was arrested Sunday, and bail was set at $5,000 for Resisting, $5,000 for the Assault and $100,000 for Burglary with Intent to Commit a Felony. This case is still under investigation by the Killeen Fire Department in reference to the fire.
