Man 'killed partner for waking up his dog'

A man who considered his dog "Hubble" a child substitute and rocked it to sleep every night murdered his partner because she woke the animal up, a court has been told.
Anthony Sherna, 42, is accused of strangling Susanne Wild, 53, and burying her body in the backyard of their home at Tarneit in Melbourne's southwest.
As he was nursing the animal in February last year, Ms Wild approached him, still angry over a mobile phone bill she woke up the dog.
Prosecutor Maitland Lincoln said Mr Sherna put the Jack Russell-Maltese Terrier cross to bed in the laundry, then took a cord and strangled Ms Wild.
