Woman Swipes Dying Man's Dog: Cops

A Siberian husky like this one was stolen from a dying man.

A Pittsburgh woman has been jailed on charges she stole her dying neighbor's dog, then attacked two police officers who arrested her.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 57-year-old Gisele Paris, who was arraigned late Tuesday on charges including theft, aggravated assault and resisting arrest and sent to jail after she was unable to post bail.

Mark Boehler says he's dying of throat cancer and still hopes to see his 8-year-old Siberian Husky, Thor, before he dies -- but police don't know where the animal is.

Police believe Paris stole the dog from Boehler's yard about Thanksgiving. She allegedly took the dog to an animal hospital last month, but became belligerent and left when workers there recognized the dog as belonging to Boehler.

Police say Paris struck two officers who arrested her, and has refused to disclose the dog's whereabouts.
