KANSAS CITY (WITI) — A Kansas City mother is horrified after learning her daughter’s dog was killed — thrown from a third-story balcony — allegedly by her ex-boyfriend.

KCTV in Kansas City, Missouri says Debbie Ervie got a call from her daughter this past weekend — saying her ex-boyfriend had killed the puppy “to spite her.”

“My heart just sank. And hearing her hysterical, it just — it broke my heart that she was two-and-a-half hours away from me, and I can’t get to her immediately,” Ervie told KCTV.


Ervie says her daughter, Gabby, is a student at Missouri State University in Springfield.

The man accused of killing her dog is William “Trip” Rabourn III.

KCTV reports court documents say Gabby and Rabourn had a “sort-of” romance.

Apparently, he got handsy at a party. She ditched him — leaving him at a gas station without a ride.

That’s when KCTV says Rabourn went to Gabby’s apartment, kicked the door in, and grabbed her dog Oliver — a Maltese-Poodle mix.

Rabourn then allegedly walked to a third-story hall window.

Police say Rabourn threw the dog overhand out the window.

    Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
