The man convicted for his involvement in the death of state trooper is now under arrest for another crime – this time on allegations on beating a dog to death.

29-Year old James J. Carncross of Apulia Road, Lafayette was taken into custody by New York State Police after an incident that took place in Pompei, New York on Friday, March 7, 2014.  Carncross is being charged with beating to death a three-year old dachshund named “Buffy.”

It has been just over two months since Carncross was released from jail following a 2006 conviction for reckless driving and aggravated criminally negligent homicide. A jury convicted Carncross in December of that year after leading police on a high speed chase that resulted in the death of Trooper Craig Todeschini, who crashed his car into a tree while pursuing Carncross.

In the latest case Carncross is being charged with one felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals and is being held without bail at the Onondago County Justice Center.
