Randazzo is claiming self defense, But Shadow's owner, Bernard Sperfeld says it's because of an altercation he had with a woman prior to the incident.
Special Prosecutor in the case, Christopher Pelli says the woman who Bernard Sperfeld came in contact with prior to his dog being killed was in Randazzo's vehicle at the time the former trooper shot the dog.
This is something he says he learned during the investigation.
Sperfeld says the woman said she "had connections," and "would take care of him and his dog."
The next day, Randazzo shot and killed the German Shepard.
Randazzo's attorney, Les Lewis says the dog was charging at his client which is why he shot the dog.
However, Pelli does not believe that Randazzo was there just walking the greenbelt.
"If I thought Randazzo was there just to walk the greenbelt, I wouldn't have indicted him. In fact, I think just the opposite," said Pelli.
"He (Randazzo) was there, he claims, to read the instructions and to try to get a clear understanding of what the rules of the greenbelt were. This female did testify in Grand Jury, she's not a secret individual," said Lewis.
Lewis also say he believes the altercation had to do with Mr. Sperfeld threatening a certain female that she was not supposed to ride her bike on the trail, which he says is how everything all got started.
Lewis also says his client will still not accept the plea deal he has been offered.
Randazzo will appear back in court on November 7.
