HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Two men accused of killing and eating a Kahala couple's pet dog pleaded not guilty Monday.

Nelson Domingo and Saturnino Palting are charged with theft and animal cruelty.

Frank Manuma says his dog was stolen while he was at Moanalua Golf Club last month. Domingo and Palting are suspected of stabbing eight-month-old Caddy to death and eating him.

Trial for the former golf course groundskeepers is tentatively set for March.
