One of the dogs belonged to Hanson, according to a police spokesperson. (Hanson had a puppy named Onyx with a personal  Instagram page; it's unclear if this was one of the dogs killed in the incident.)

“One belonged to the suspect, the other belonged to someone known to the suspect,” ACPD spokeswoman Ashley Savage said, ALNow reports. “To best protect the identity of the victim, we will not release additional information related to their relationship.”

Hanson remains behind bars with no bond.  It is unclear whether he has an attorney to comment on his behalf. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for late August.
