Accused dog killer denied bond

Jones County Judge Billy Joe Landrum has refused to grant bond to an accused dog killer.

Landrum said Johnny Smith, 39, has to stay in jail until he goes before a grand jury.

Smith is accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's garage and mutilating her two dogs.

Smith is charged with burglary and felony malicious mischief. He has been in jail since his arrest in October on a $100,000 cash bond.

Judge Landrum ordered Smith to undergo a psychiatric examination last month, and this week, Landrum refused to lower Smith's bond.

A Jones County grand jury will meet today (Wednesday) in Ellisville.
