Man who killed dog in College Park burglary spree gets 7 years in prison
The man who killed a dog during a string of home burglaries on King Street in College Park was sentenced Thursday to seven years in prison for the crime, police say.
On Jan. 23, Leonardo Turull broke into three homes in the 200 block of King in the College Park neighborhood, his arrest report says.
A distinct imprint of a DC brand skateboard-style shoe was left behind in the a pool of blood from Wilson, the 2-year-old boxer that Turull stabbed to death, the report said.
The same shoe print was found at another King Street home the night of the burglary, and shoes with matching prints were found inside Turull's home when the 22-year-old man was arrested on a warrant weeks after the burglaries.
Forensic testing found traces of the animal's blood on Turull's shoes.
Another man, 18-year-old David Morales, was arrested on charges of resisting an officer in connection with events that occurred while the warrant was executed. The charges against Morales were later dropped.
Turull pleaded no contest to animal cruelty and burglary charges and was adjudicated guilty. According to his arrest report, Turull made off with nearly $9,000 in property from the three homes.
In one home, Turull grabbed several pieces of jewelry, including a pair of gold hoop earrings and a sterling silver cross from Tiffany & Co., and at another home he got a flat-screen television worth about $600.
It was in Wilson's home, however, that Turull grabbed the most loot — items valued about $7,000.
From that home, Turull took a surfboard valued about $650 and several electronics, including four flat-screen televisions, an Apple iPad, laptops, digital cameras, an Xbox 360, a Sony Playstation 3 and two Nintendo Wii gaming systems.
The surfboard was found along with a knife inside Turull's home when his place was searched February.
