A 24-year-old Navy sailor was arrested for allegedly stabbing a puppy to death, Fox4KC.com reported.
The roommate of Virginia native Joseph Justeson was taking care of Zoey, a German Shepherd and Golden Retriever mix, for friends.
Justeson's roommate reportedly returned to his house and found the 10-month-old dog dead in the corner of the living room. There was blood on the couches and on the floor; a knife was on a couch.
After receiving a call, police arrived and found Justeson passed out next to the dog.
According to Fox4KC.com, Justeson is a Petty Officer Third Class assigned to the USS Abraham Lincoln. He enlisted in 2009.
Zoey's owners said she was well-behaved and do not understand why the sailor would kill her.
