Man charged in killing after argument over disciplining dog

April 03, 2018 - 4:59 PM

DENVER - A Colorado man has been charged with first-degree murder in his neighbour's slaying. A witness says the two had been arguing over how the victim disciplined his dog.

The Denver Post reports that 32-year-old Michael Kourosh Sadeghi was charged Tuesday morning in the March 27 killing of 42-year-old Dustin Schmidt.

Vicki Branaghan, who lives with Schmidt, says her German shepherd Bruno had jumped the fence between their yard and Sadeghi's yard. Schmidt pulled the dog back over to his yard.

She said an argument erupted after Schmidt swatted their dog. She said Sadeghi pulled a gun out and "shot Dustin in the back of the head five times," then "walked back to his house as though nothing happened."

Sadeghi is being held without bond. Booking documents do not indicate if he has hired an attorney.
