A Jamestown man has been indicted for murdering his wife and stabbing a police dog.

The Chautauqua County District Attorney's Office says Keith Robbins, 36, the suspect in the November 10 murder of Shari Robbins, is accused of shooting his wife in the parking lot at 9 Prospect Street in Jamestown. He is charged with second degree murder and injuring a police animal.

Officials say there was a six hour stand-off between Robbins and the police before he was finally taken into custody on November 15 at 2 Todd Avenue in Jamestown.

During the stand-off, police say Robbins stabbed the Jamestown Police K-9 "Mitchell" after he was sent into the home to find Robbins. The K-9 received emergency surgery and is expected to recover.

According to the DA, Robbins was arraigned Monday in Chautauqua County Court and is being held in the county jail without bail.
