A grand jury has charged a man with larceny for burning his estranged wife's car after he packed it with mementos of their life together, including her pet Chihuahua.

Craig Neal Robinson, 24, of Washington, was charged this week by a Pitt County grand jury with felonious breaking and entering, larceny of a dog, burning personal property, cruelty to animals, and violating a domestic violence protective order.

Robinson allegedly took his wife's car from her workplace Oct. 5 and set it on fire, according to police reports. The dog's remains were found after the fire department extinguished the blaze.
