Arrest Made in Case of Puppy Set on Fire in Dallas

WFAA

A warrant was issued and the suspect turned himself into police today for setting a puppy on fire at a Dallas apartment complex. Justice, the name given to the puppy who was tortured, died from his injuries about a week after the unspeakable act.

Teenager Darius Ewing, 18, turned himself into police today after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The SPCA had increased the reward for information on Justice’s case to $25,000 after the puppy died. He was treated for a week and seemed to be improving, but he took a turn for the worse at Texas A&M and passed away.

Ewing, who allegedly threw a lit cigarette on Justice after dousing the puppy with lighter fluid, turned himself into police while mourners were holding a candelight vigil for the dog.

Justice was found by a resident of the apartment complex, who used a shirt to put out the flames. He was covered in second- and third-degree burns on 70 percent of his body.

Unspeakable brutality, and hopefully justice happens for Justice in the end.
