CORNING, N.Y. (WETM-18) – A Corning woman was arraigned Thursday after police say she killed a pit bull she and her husband owned.

Corning police say Gaylynn Taylor, 32 of Steuben Street in the City of Corning slit her dog‘s throat and repeatedly stabbed it to death. She then dumped the dog at a house in Painted Post. They say she had been arguing with her husband.

“Apparently she was always accusing him of leaving the dog with her for her to take care of. He had left for the evening after they had this dispute and her way to get back at him was to destroy the dog,” said Lieutenant Jeffrey Heverly of the Corning Police.

According to court documents, police say Taylor confessed at the scene, saying: “You wanna know the truth? I slit that dog’s throat and stabbed it…I don’t know how many times!”

The Corning Police Department arrested Taylor for aggravated cruelty to animals. She was released and is scheduled back in city court on October 23rd. Taylor did not answer when a reporter knocked on her door.
