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.
