Man indicted in dog-shooting case

A man accused of shooting a neighbor’s dog and taking a chain saw to the animal was indicted Monday.

Pablo C. Chaves, 35, is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals and discharging a firearm near a road in the Richmond County indictment.

Chaves faces the charges in a Feb. 17 incident involving a neighbor’s rottweiler-pit bull mix on Chester Avenue. According to an earlier Augusta Chronicle report, when a sheriff’s officer responded to a call about shots fired, he found Chaves with a bloody chain saw and a dead dog.
