Pa. man charged with choking woman, killing puppy

NEW CASTLE, Pa. - July 27, 2012

The New Castle News reports police filed charges Wednesday against 54-year-old Leroy Graham. Online court records don't list an attorney for Graham and show he has yet to be arrested.

Police say they filed the charges after viewing surveillance video provided by the Lawrence County Housing Authority, which runs the housing project where the incidents allegedly occurred July 11.

The woman tells police she asked Graham to watch her 2-month-old puppy that day and returned to find Graham angry when her shopping trip took longer than expected.

Graham is also on probation for sex offenses.
