CANTON, Ohio -- A man accused of shooting and fatally wounding an Ohio police dog after robbing a grocery store has been indicted by a grand jury.
Kelontre Barefield, 22, is charged with six counts, including aggravated robbery, assaulting a police dog and shooting at police.
No attorney is listed for him in the Stark County court record.
Prosecutor John Ferrero tells The Repository (http://bit.ly/1njhoPH ) that Barefield could get more than 50 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
Canton police say the 3-year-old German shepherd named Jethro was shot three times during the January confrontation in Canton at Fisher Foods and died the next day.
