Boy Kills Man for Dog

MOSCOW -- A boy beat a homeless man to death for kicking a dog, Itar-Tass reported Thursday.

The news agency said the boy, 10, was out walking in the Urals industrial city of Chelyabinsk with a group of friends, one of whom had a dog. When a homeless drunk kicked the dog, the boy flew into a rage and beat the man to death with a stick.

The boy was taken to a temporary isolation jail for juvenile offenders. He had been abandoned three years ago by his mother, who is herself on the police wanted list, the agency said.
