Burglary Alleged In Dog Death Dispute

Aggravated burglary charges are pending against two Putnam County residents who were allegedly involved in a dispute over dogs. The sheriff's department says 55-year-old Joyce Papacsi of Grider Road and her 20-year-old grandson, Christopher, are charged in the case which began when their chihuahua was killed by a neighbor's pit bulldogs. The neighbor alleges that after the incident, the two came to her home, kicked open the door and attacked her, taking her cell phone. Joyce Papacsi told Deputy Chris Brown that no such break-in occurred and that the neighbor actually encouraged the pit bulls to attack their chihuahua. The incident will now have to be hashed out in General Sessions court.
