SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (KTLA/AP) -- Police in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale say a man is accused of killing his 4-year-old golden retriever service dog at his home and dumping the dog’s body in a garbage can, where it was found by family members.

Police say in a statement that 29-year-old Jacob Bushkin was arrested Thursday night on suspicion of killing a service animal and animal cruelty.

The statement says Bushkin declined to speak with investigators and that detectives arrested him at the office of his lawyer, Ryan Tait.

According to police, a necropsy found that the dog was stabbed more than 100 times and a veterinarian said the dog’s throat had been cut.
