Ga. woman beaten with dead dog

  • Follow Latest News

SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. — Police outside Atlanta say a woman was beaten with a dog’s body in what they call one of the worst cases of animal cruelty they’ve ever seen.

Sandy Springs police say 27-year-old Emmanuel Alfredo Tadeo faces animal cruelty and aggravated assault charges following a fight between him and his wife.

Capt. Steve Rose tells WSB-TV that Tadeo is accused of stomping on the couple’s Pomeranian dog. Rose said Tadeo told police that he also snapped the dog’s neck.

Rose said that at one point, Tadeo used the dog’s body to strike his wife.

Police say the dog died. Prosecutors this week upgraded Tadeo’s charges to felonies in connection with the May 19 incident.

Upon conviction, a good judge

Upon conviction, a good judge should mandate the same sentence to him that he rendered to the Pom. Of course that portion of the scenerio that included his wife would be excluded. This person should not be included in the species of "mankind".

Human Race?

I'm sorry David, someone like this guy should not be considered of the human race. He is like some wild animal, and deserves the absolute longest and hardest sentence that anyone should get for an act such as this. With that last name, I hope police have checked on his legal status being in America. He was a real big man wasn't he?? A Pomeranian is a little dog, poor little thing. Hopefully, his wife will get away from ole' Tadeo!

Upgrade

The way the story is written, it looks like the police were charging him with a misdemeanor for beating his wife, but they upgraded it to a felony because he killed the dog.

I like the sentence "specialist" explained. Good that he was caught by the cops before a couple of people I know, could've gotten a hold of him. Since they love Poms, they would've strung him up, and gutted him like a deer -- probably alive, at least for awhile anyway.

I hope that woman gets away

I hope that woman gets away from him now, because if she doesn't, she will be dead too.

Disgusting, but I'm sorry to say I'm no longer surprised when I read this type of story. What has happened to people? The moral compass is not broken, it is non-existent for some!

Horrified

This is horrific and unimaginable to me!
I cringe everytime a dog is abused, and I can't begin to imagine what this poor woman was feeling! It takes a sick person to attack a totally defenseless animal, then you attack your wife. I hope the stiffest of penalties are coming your way!!
If the wife doesn't leave after this? There are no words....

I set up an acct just to comment

This is the most disturbing story I have heard in years. I have little dogs and I cannot imagine someone that would not only kill them in anger, but then HIT me with one of them!!! What a sorry excuse for a man...if you can call him that. I hope he spends some time in prison thinking seriously about the bad choices he has made...but he probably won't. He will get a lawyer and plea down to some minor crime that he gets probation for...That will make him all better.
