Officer Under Investigation In K-9 Death

In Conyers, Georgia, police K-9 bloodhound Zane had been left in the car for almost 10 hours when he was found dead at 5 p.m. After feeling sick, officer Jerahmy Williams fell asleep in his home. It was only when he woke up that he realized Zane was left in the car. Police chief Gene Wilson believes this was an accident. Wilson says that, Williams who is a patrol corporal with five years at the department, has a clean disciplinary record.

Zane had worked for the police department for four years. Three of those years were with Williams. Wilson said "He truly, truly loves that dog. And for him to know that it was his actions that caused the dog to perish, it's going to be difficult for him to deal with." Williams is currently on paid leave pending the outcome of a criminal investigation.

Possible charges he could face include reckless conduct and animal cruelty.
