HONOLULU (KHNL) - Two men accused of killing and eating a Kahala couple's pet dog lost a round in court Monday. A judge denied Nelson Domingo and Saturnino Palting's motion to dismiss the case.

They're now scheduled to go to trial April 27, 2009 on theft and animal cruelty charges.

Frank Manuma says his dog was stolen while he was at Moanalua Golf Club last year. The defendants, former golf course groundskeepers, are accused of stabbing eight-month-old Caddy to death and eating him.
