CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

A campground landlord has been indicted in connection with the shooting of a dog last summer. 

It happened June 4, 2012, in the Hollow Oak campground on Fort Argyle Road. The dog's owner said the dog was chained in front of a camper so that the James Wrenn could fix an electrical problem.

But Wrenn said that after he fixed the electrical problem, the dog tried to bite a neighbor and then attacked him. Police said Wrenn shot a female pit bull mix breed known as Baby Girl in the head. 

A Chatham County grand jury felt the evidence supported a charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

In October, Wrenn was indicted on one count special presentment of aggravated cruelty to animals, another count of aggravated cruelty to animals and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
