West Haven police said they have identified two suspects in the death of a small dog that was set on fire last week.
Firefighters and police responded to Beach Street near Second Avenue and Third Avenue around 10 a.m. on Friday, July 5 after a fire was reported in the Sandy Point Beach parking lot and they found a small dog, possibly a miniature schnauzer, dead at the scene, according to police.
Investigators said it appears the dog was set on fire with an accelerant and abandoned in the parking lot.
On Friday, police said they have identified two suspects in the animal cruelty, arson case and interviewed one of them. That person is cooperating with police.
Investigators said they expect to submit arrest warrants to Milford Superior Court.
No additional information was immediately available.
