Nebraska Man accused of using Hammer to Kill Dog
CREATED Apr 22, 2013
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - A 26-year-old Grand Island man has been arrested, accused of killing a dog.
Michael Berst was arrested on Sunday.
Grand Island Police Sgt. Jim Duering says investigators believe Berst used a hammer to bludgeon to death the family dog.
Duering didn't have any information on what led up to the incident. He says it occurred several days before Berst's arrest.
Hall County jail records say Berst remained in custody on Monday. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
