Investigators say they didn’t have enough evidence to arrest 25-year-old Gary Williams until he was arrested for a robbery this year.

The detective assigned to Sydney’s case interviewed Williams and says he confessed to killing the dog.

Williams allegedly said he was afraid when he heard the dog’s collar jingling towards him but could not see what type of dog it was or what size it was before he started shooting.
