Mt. Sterling Man Accused Of Killing Girlfriend's Dog

Posted: Updated:

It took 14 months, but a Mt. Sterling man is in jail after police say his girlfriend made a horrifying discovery at their home.

Billy Tipton's girlfriend found her 5-month old Jack Russell terrier lying in the front yard suffering from injuries police say are consistent with its head being stomped on.

Officers came to the house twice that day in September, when the events allegedly happened. The first time was an argument between the couple and the second time was after the girlfriend got a call from Tipton.

“He called her and stated not to worry about the dog, which they jointly owned, that he was going to take care of it or kill it,” says Sgt. Terry Johnson.

The girlfriend tells LEX 18 that Tipton did not stomp on the dog. Rather, she says the dog died after being struck by a vehicle and that they decided to euthanize it after taking the puppy to the vet.

Mt. Sterling police say they never heard those claims. The 911 call audio tape has the girlfriend saying, “I come back and he killed the dog.”

Tipton's arrest warrant states that the dog died after a period of prolonged suffering.
