      Lafayette man pleads not guilty to kicking, killing dog

      James Carncross

      A Lafayette man pleaded not guilty to an aggravated cruelty to animals charge in Onondaga County Court Tuesday.

      29-year-old James Carncross is accused of kicking a Dachshund named ??Buffy?? in March.

      Police say Carncross caused an injury to the three-year-old dog that ultimately killed it.

      Carncross is currently in jail on a parole violation. He was released from prison in 2013 after being convicted in 2006 for his role in a high-speed chase crash that caused the death of Trooper Craig Todeschini.
