Arrest made in fatal Camarillo dog burning

Ventura County sheriff's deputies said Friday they had arrested an 18-year-old man who allegedly doused his family's dog with lighter fluid and set him on fire.

The dog, a 3-year-old basset hound named Buddy, died from burns suffered in the Oct. 27 attack.

Officials said Andrew Delgado told investigators he was high on drugs at the time of the incident, which occurred in a ravine near his family's Camarillo Heights home. He said he did not know why he did it, according to a statement from the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

He was arrested on suspicion of arson and animal cruelty and is to appear in Ventura County Superior Court on Nov. 13.
