NEWPORTóCircuit Judge Ben W. Hooper II heard arguments Tuesday morning on a motion seeking to declare the search of a Carson Springs residence late last year to be found improper.
The judge gave the attorneys the opportunity to file additional legal briefs and written arguments in the case, in which a Newport man is facing criminal charges in connection with two home break-ins. In one of the burglaries, a small dog was crushed to death underfoot, investigators reported.
Twenty-three-year-old Christopher Jamall Haney, of White Oak Avenue, is charged with aggravated cruelty to animals, two counts of aggravated burglary, and two counts of theft of property valued at more than $1,000. The charges stem from home burglaries off Eighth Street and Clifton Heights, according to court records.
