PHOENIX — An Arizona Department of Corrections officer could be facing charges in the death of his K-9 partner, "Ike."
Ike died last month after he was left locked inside a hot sport utility vehicle for several hours.
The results of the investigation into Ike's death were released Friday. In this report, Ike's handler, Officer Jesse Durantes, says it was an accident. He forgot the dog was in the back of the SUV when he parked it at the prison, then went home for the day.
