NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Deputies with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 62-year-old man Wednesday in connection to allegations that he poisoned a woman’s German shepherd by mixing antifreeze with hamburger meat and feeding it to the dog.

Antonio Lopez Romero, of Nacogdoches, was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail on Wednesday on a state-jail felony cruelty to non-livestock animals charge. He was released later that day after he posted a bail amount of $5,000.

According to the arrest affidavit, the incident occurred on Feb .14. An NCSO detective was assigned the case on the next day, and he reviewed the report a deputy had taken.

The victim told the deputy that she discovered her German shepherd had been poisoned, and she suspected that Romero was the person responsible, the affidavit stated. When the NCSO spoke to Romero through a translator, the man allegedly admitted that he mixed antifreeze with hamburger meet and fed it to the dog.
