A 32-year-old man is expected to be arraigned in municipal court this afternoon on charges he assaulted a woman and bludgeoned a dog to death with two bricks.

William Williams, 32, turned himself at the Mahoning County jail about 12:35 a.m. today on misdemeanor warrants for domestic violence and animal cruelty.

He is accused of scratching a woman during an argument April 3 at a home in the 100 block of Lauderdale Avenue and then beating her 4-year-old Maltese, “Gabby,” to death with two bricks.

Police had been looking for Williams most of this week before he turned himself in. He had a reckless homicide charge reduced from murder for the death of a homeless man in 2005 and served four years in prison on the charge, court records show.
