RAINELLE, WV (WVVA) -
Rainelle police charge a man who they say admitted to beating his dog on the head with a hammer until it died.
According to the criminal complaint, police were alerted this week that Donald Lee Adkins, 55, killed his dog.
When they went to interview him, Adkins told police he killed it because the dog had been sick for about a month, rather than seeking medical treatment.
Witnesses told police they watched him drag the dog down the street to his home after it had collapsed.
Adkins has been charged with cruelty to animals.
