A gay porn star – who left his pet with his boyfriend to attend his grandmother’s funeral – returned to find it stabbed to death, over jealousy and cheating accusations.

José Luis Rodriguez was arrested by police officers in the Upper East Side of New York, allegedly covered in the dog’s blood after having killed it in a rage.

Adult actor Vin Nolan, also known as Randy Capehart, had left his chihuahua with Mr Rodriguez to travel to Texas to pay his final respects to his gran.

Police officers said they had been told the dog was slain in front of families and children and it had been killed because Mr Rodriguez suspected Mr Capehart of being unfaithful.

They also confirmed they had contacted Mr Capehart to inform him of the incident.

“Apparently, my former partner had a psychotic break,” said Mr Capehart.

Writing on his Facebook later, he said: “It’s with a heavy heart I have to announce the passing of my beautiful sweet innocent Buddy.

“Rest in peace my beautiful angel, I only wish I would have been there to save you.”

Mr Rodriguez has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon and criminal mischief.

Last month, in a similar incident, a trans woman was arrested in Thailand after throwing her friend’s dog out of the window for pooping throughout the house.
