MSU Med-Student To Stand Trial In Deaths Of Greyhound Dogs

E. LANSING (WWJ) – A 24-year-old Michigan State University medical student will stand trial in the deaths of three greyhound puppies. Andrew Thompson was in court Friday for a hearing to determine if there is probable cause to send him to trial in Ingham County Circuit Court.

A county animal control official testified at the hearing that Thompson said he killed one of the greyhounds last year because the dog had urinated in his bedroom.

Andrew Thompson is accused of killing 10 dogs. He will face similar hearings about other dogs.

Thompson has been suspended from MSU’s College of Osteopathic Medicine.
