Gerald Miller, of Lakewood, was charged March 13 after he allegedly stabbed a dog to death in Amherst.
Miller said he and his daughter were walking their dog down Red Tailed Lane on March 10 when a German shepherd mix ran toward the pair in an aggressive manner, according to cleveland.com.
Miller told Amherst police he stabbed the dog in the back with a folding knife to prevent it from attacking his daughter's dog, but witnesses disagreed with Miller's version of the story.
