Judge lowers bond for man accused of killing ex-girlfriend’s dog

Pomeranian Teddy

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Bond was lowered Tuesday for the man accused of beating his ex-girlfriend’s dog to death.

Police say John Santiago broke into the woman’s house last year. When she arrived home, she found Santiago and her Pomeranian, Teddy, who was barely alive.

Police say the little dog had been burned and beaten.

Santiago was being held on a $25,000 cash or surety bond, but Tuesday, District Court Judge Briana Zamora lowered it to $7,000, meaning Santiago needs just $700 to get out.
