    A New Jersey man allegedly involved in a domestic dispute hanged his family dog before setting fire to his home, police say.

    The Press of Atlantic City reports that 29-year-old Janrv Bacolod is accused of using an accelerant and setting fire to several parts of his Holly Street home in Mays Landing last Friday.

    Several cats inside the home were killed, according to The Press of AC.

    Prior to setting the blaze, police say Bacolod hanged his dog.

    Police records show that the suspect's estranged wife had a restraining order against him. They say he violated that order when he called her at work and threatened her.

    Bacolod is being held on $100,000 bail, according to the paper.
