THE FAMILY VIOLENCE/ANIMAL CRUELTY LINK

Woman Arrested For Animal Cruelty (US )

Jan 13 - A 31-year-old Kyle woman is facing jail time Thursday night for killing her husband's dog. It started as a domestic dispute and ended when the woman grabbed the dog and a knife.

The gruesome nature of this crime could send the woman to prison for several years.

"This was a particularly nasty crime and such a criminal act is not going to be tolerated here in the city of Austin," Lt. Doug Dukes with APD Strategic Command said.

An act simply heinous by definition, and a woman obviously saddled with emotional problems. Thirty-one-year-old Joanne Hinojosa turned herself in to police just before 3 p.m.

Police say she butchered her estranged husband's dog stabbing it 27 times.

"Family violence and cruelty to animals are very, very closely related. Usually when one happens, it's not far off for the other on to happen soon after," Dukes said.

That is how witnesses say this started, when Hinojosa came to her estranged husband's house. Police say they argued. She took a swing at him, and he ran down the street and called police.

It was then Hinojosa called the dog, took her inside and started stabbing.

"A lot of times when you're seeing domestic abuse or child abuse situations happen you're also going to have animal abuse in these same types of households. So there's not anything that's going to predict the kind of person that would do that," TLAC Director Dorinda Pulliam said.

The dog was taken to the Ben White Pet Hospital for emergency surgery. Because of blood loss and severe organ damage, she was euthanized.

"This will not be tolerated and we're going to deal with it to the full extent of the law," Dukes said.

Hinojosa faces up to four years behind bars and a $14,000 fine for family violence and animal cruelty charges.

Bond was set at $30,000. Additional charges are pending.

"Animal cruelty is a crime, and it's something that needs to be taken seriously. If you're involved in harming an animal, you can do felony time for that so it is something we take very seriously," Pulliam said.

The dog, named Marti, suffered stab wounds to the abdomen, lungs, spleen, diaphragm and other internal organs.

Police found the dog with the knife blade still in the abdomen.

Police say Mrs. Hinojosa also caused damage to her husband's truck, and his friend's truck.

Because of that, criminal mischief charges could also be filed.
