CLEVELAND — An 80-year-old man accused of shooting his neighbor to death over an argument over another neighbor's dog has been charged with murder in connection to her death.

Johnny J. Hogue, 80, of Cleveland, is charged with aggravated murder, a first-degree felony.

Hogue is accused of shooting Barbara Rogers, identified as the victim by the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Officer, to death on Gorman Avenue.
