DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say a man who was sought in connection with the burning death of a 4-month-old puppy has surrendered to authorities.

Darius Ewing turned himself in at the same time a candlelight vigil was being held for the Labrador terrier mix named Justice. Ewing had been wanted on a felony animal cruelty charge.

Authorities say several people set a dog on fire April 4 at an apartment complex in the Pleasant Grove district of southeast Dallas.

The group ran away when police arrived. A witness told police someone poured lighter fluid on the puppy before setting it on fire.

The puppy suffered burns to 70 percent of its body. Later named Justice, he died April 13. A $25,000 reward had been offered for an arrest of anyone involved.
