A man was found guilty by a jury in just 5 mins of killing his dog that he then fed to another pet.
Dominic O’Connor, 27, strangled Jess, a four-year-old collie, with a lead last Dec then cut up her body with an mattock and a bread knife.
O’Connor, formerly famous as William Moscari, bought Jess on Facebook and certified what he had finished to police, but faced a two-day trial.
He said: ‘I baked it and fed it to the other dog with a few onions and an Oxo brick and salt and pepper.’
He told police that he tried twice to suppress Jess but the first lead he used had ‘too much give’.
The residue of the dog’s body was chopped with an mattock and bread knife then burned on a fire with the stays dumped in Portavogie Harbour, County Down.
The justice listened from O’Connor’s crony who pronounced that she beheld a tainted smell in his residence which she pronounced ‘seemed strange’.
She pronounced that one day the collie was in the house, the next it was not and that he had confessed to slaying Jess.
She pronounced that he certified to putting her in the showering at first before putting her in the bin after the crony left.
She told the court: ‘In a way he was joyous about it. He was not all there. His conduct was somewhere else.’
When police went to his residence in Kircubbin following concerns from a neighbour they found dog hair and glass in the fire grate.
He will be condemned for causing nonessential pang to Jess on Nov 21.
