Kimberly Freemon, 31, was arrested yesterday morning for the intentional killing of her boyfriend's dog, Sara, back on November 22, 2012, according to police reports obtained by FOX 17 News. The offense is considered a misdemeanor.
Freemon had taken her boyfriends truck and dog at around 6 a.m. that morning, so he walked toward Madison Park where she often walked the dog to see if she was there, according to police. Freemon drove the truck out of the park and in his direction, but then drove off.
When the boyfriend returned home, Freemon was there with the truck. He asked where the dog was, and she said, "She's gone."
According to the affidavit, the boyfriend discovered that the bed of the truck was bloody. He went to the dumpster where Freemon parked the truck and found his dog lying on the ground with its throat cut. The bloody box cutter was found inside the cab. He later found her clothes that Freemon was wearing during the incident covered with blood.
Freemon was taken away for medical evaluation.
She is being held in the Davidson County Jail on $75,000 bond, which also includes a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

2 appellate court judges are stepping down
May 24, 2013 21:29 GMT
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Two Tennessee appellate court judges have notified Gov. Bill Haslam that they will not run for another term on the bench in the August 2014 retention election.
Patricia J. Cottrell, a judge on the Court of Appeals, and Joseph M. Tipton, who sits on the Court of Criminal Appeals bench, will both leave after September of next year.
The announcements come after the state legislature left Tennessee without a way to replace judges who step down or die when a commission expires at the end of next month.
Members of the soon-to-be-defunct Judicial Nominating Commission will make recommendations for replacements to give to Haslam before the panel expires. Haslam will appoint the replacements from those recommendations.
