Police: Conklin man kills two horses over alleged affair

OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (WZZM)- Ottawa County detectives say a man, upset with his wife, took out his anger by fatally stabbing two horses.

Dennis Finkler, 47,  is charged with two counts of animal cruelty and malicious destruction of property.

It all started Friday night, when Finkler and his wife had an argument at Bramer Equestrians Stables, where they boarded a horse.

Finkler was accusing his wife of having an affair with the owner of the stables.  They eventually left, but investigators believe he showed back up, later that night.  Finkler allegedly stabbed his wife's Quarter Horse and the owner's 8-year old Palomino named "Gambler".

Finkler was released Monday afternoon on a $3,000 bond.  He is due back in court later this month.
