SARASOTA FL: The story of a sweet, tiny pup named Athena has gone worldwide. The precious miniature dachshund died a horrible death, spending her final moments, sadly, in fear and pain. Athena's heartbreaking murder was captured on surveillance video. A man dog sitting Athena is seen on camera, deputies say, punching the 12-pound puppy repeatedly. Stacy Sean Glover was supposed to be caring for the pup, but is instead accused of a savage crime – beating Athena to death.
The arrest report said on Tuesday, Jan. 21st, 2014, at about 8:30 p.m., Stacy Glover and his victim, Alivia Glover got into a verbal argument at a residence located at 8254 Longbay Blvd., in South Manatee County. The argument turned physical when Stacy threw Alivia onto a bed. As Alivia reached to defend herself, Stacy pushed her against the bed and choked her from behind until she could not breathe. Alivia called law enforcement and Stacy left the residence. He then returned to the scene and was arrested. He was charged with Domestic Battery by Strangulation. He was released from the Manatee County Jail on his own recognizance, supervised.
