Chatham-Kent police say a puppy was killed during a domestic dispute early this morning at an apartment building.

Officers allege a 25-year-old man threw the dog down the stairs during a fight with his common-law wife. They say the man tossed the puppy down a second time when the woman tried to intervene and help the dog.

Police say they're currently consulting with the Crown and the OSPCA on the the case.

Officers say the suspect currently faces charges of domestic assault and threatening and is scheduled to appear in court for a bail hearing today...
