A Moro man was indicted Thursday for shooting and killing his St. Bernard.
The charges come a day after Roxana police charged an 18-year-old Wood River man with misdemeanor cruelty to animals.
According to that charge, Andrew J. Lochmann, of the 1100 block of Lorena, allegedly injured a turtle by throwing it approximately 20 feet into the air and "causing the turtle to strike a concrete path."
The blow broke part of the turtle's shell, according to the complaint.
