Man Expected to Plead Guilty in Beating Girlfriend With Dead Dog

Emmanuel Alfredo Tadeo of Sandy Springs is accused of killing his girlfriend's dog and then beating her with the Pomeranian when the pet tried to defend her during a heated argument, in May.


A Sandy Springs man accused of killing his girlfriend’s pet Pomeranian and then using the dead animal as a weapon to beat the woman is expected to enter a guilty plea on Thursday morning, a statement from the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office said.

Emmanuel Alfredo Tadeo is charged with Aggravated Assault, Aggravated Animal Cruelty, Animal Cruelty and Battery in the May 19 incident.

The victim was allegedly kicked and beaten by Tadeo during an argument at her Roswell Road apartment.

Her dog was also kicked and stomped after rushing to her defense. The pet was later taken outside where it was killed. Its body was then allegedly used in further attacks against the victim.

Tadeo faces a maximum 20 years in prison on the Aggravated Assault charge and a maximum of five years in prison on the felony Animal Cruelty charge.

He needs more punishment than that! What a cruel thing to do. That poor lady! The trama she went throught and will continue to go through!

The only thing that helps many of us find solace in all of this is the knowledge that Tadeo will find some very large friends during his incarceration.

"...worthless alien trash!" Oh, jimmie... Is yours the kind of comment Jesus would have made?

I agree. This may be normal where he is from that's why after he has done the time for his crime I hope he has to go back to his home. He does not belong in the United States. GO HOME>>>>>

And, Debi, if he was from say, Ireland, would you still be recommending deportation? Just a question...

He's no more "alien" than the Columbuses that came over here and wiped out native Americans -- with virtal impunity. Consider that.
