Alejandro Guitierrez, 30, of Tucson, is facing misdemeanor domestic violence/criminal damge and two felony counts of animal abuse. Police received a 911 call, yesterday and, when they responded, Guitierrez" wife told them that he had smashed the passenger window of her van, with his fist when she refused to give him money for beer. In the backyard, they found a bloody baseball bat and, nearby, the bodies of the family dog and cat. They were dead of multiple head wounds. He has posted $3800 bail and is expected to be released, today. I'm not sure what the penalty is for this but, whatever it is, it won't be enough. At least, killing the pets is a felony. Attacking his wife should be, too. I know the neighborhood, where he lives and he'd better not go back - someone there is liable to beat HIM with a baseball bat. I'd be happy to provide the bat.
