A Williamsport man accused of shooting two dogs that ran onto his property has asked for a jury trial, the man's attorney said today.
Jeffrey Hurd's case will be moved from Washington County District Court to Washington County Circuit Court, Attorney Lewis C. Metzner said.
Hurd, 54, of 11845 Camden Road, was scheduled to appear in District Court this morning but requested a jury trial Tuesday.
A date for Hurd's Circuit Court trial has not been set, Metzer said today.
Hurd was charged in May with felony counts of animal cruelty and malicious destruction of property in connection with the shooting death of Harley, his neighbor's German shepherd.
