Home invader killed Dachshund

Unfortunately this is not a cheery holiday story:

TARPON SPRINGS, Florida – A 16-year-old Tarpon Springs boy has been charged in one home invasion and has emerged as a suspect in two other crimes – another home invasion in which a 92-year-old man was toppled from his wheelchair and a burglary in which a dachshund’s throat was slit, police and victims say.
