The Virginia man who allegedly shot and killed his neighbor’s dog after a verbal altercation has been released from jail, according to Fairfax County officials.

Roman Vyacheslavov Gorelov, 33, faces two felony counts of animal cruelty and reckless use of a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school.

Gorelov was released on bail Monday at an arraignment hearing, despite the Fairfax County Commonwealth Prosecutor’s Office saying the bail motion was set for Tuesday. The Prosecutor’s Office said it is currently trying to revoke the bond.

District Court Clerk Susan Madsen said Gorelov was arraigned Monday morning, granted $10,000 secured bond and appointed a public defender.

Fairfax Commonwealth attorney Steve Descano has said the chief district court judge has barred his office from participating in the arraignments.

Madsen told FOX 5 that prosecutors can participate in arraignments, which she said was reiterated to them in August.

The Commonwealth Prosecutor’s Office says judges have made it difficult for prosecutors to speak at court appearances.
