A northwest suburban man was ordered held in lieu of $50,000 bail Sunday in connection to allegations that he fatally stabbed his father’s dog in April.

Andrew J. Maynard, 18, of the 200 block of Victoria Lane in Elk Grove Village, faces an aggravated cruelty to animal charge for his alleged role in the April 21 stabbing, according to Cook County Bond Court documents.

Witnesses only recently came forward in the case, Assistant State’s Attorney Oscar Garcia said.
About 6 that morning, Maynard took Frisky the sheltie to a nearby park, Garcia said. Maynard then stabbed Frisky twice in the neck, killing the dog, according to court documents.

He took witnesses to the dog’s corpse in the park, according to court documents, and those witnesses told Maynard’s father about Frisky’s demise.

Maynard admitted he was under the influence of drugs at the time of the stabbing, Garcia said in court Sunday.

“He thought the dog was possessed,” Garcia said.

    So many stories of dogs being harmed this week. It's just sad most of them are being owned by such heartless savages.


    He's possessed; he should be stabbed twice in the neck.
    Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs.

    Agree with the comment by JOLLYJIM….this moron ought to get stabbed in the neck…maybe his new convict "friends" will take care of that. What a "real big man", to stab a small sheltie…time for the shank as punishment!!!
