NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A New Orleans-area veterinarian is accused of shooting her neighbor's dog in the head, killing it.
  
Jefferson County prosecutors on Wednesday filed charges including aggravated cruelty to an animal and illegal discharging of a firearm against 35-year-old Kelly Folse.
  
NOLA.com ' The Times-Picayune reports that Folse was arrested Dec. 19 in connection with the shooting death of Bruizer, 15-month-old American bulldog that belonged to Folse's next-door neighbor, Stacey Fitzner.
  
Interim Sheriff Joseph Lopinto said Folse shot Bruizer after months of sending aggressive and hostile text messages and videos to the dog's owner about its loud barking.
  
Folse's attorney, Robert Garrity Jr., has said his client did not shoot the dog. He accused Lopinto of using the case as political grandstanding.
