A Jacksonville man has been arrested on charges of killing a dog and cat after their hides were found drying on a fence.

Hozae Lamar Milton, 43, of the 100 block of West 36th Street was arrested Thursday, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.

He is charged with cruelty to animals, possession of a dog or cat pelt with intent to sell, killing a dog or cat with intent to sell or give away the pelt, and illegal possession of shopping carts.

Milton’s Brentwood neighbors said they saw him transporting a dead dog in a shopping cart, and skinning a dog in the yard of his house.

When police arrived, they found the hides hanging in plain sight and arrested Milton. In a freezer, investigators found containers of meat, what appeared to be a rib cage and an eyeball in a container.

Monday, members of Milton’s family said he has had mental health issues in the past, and been hospitalized for short periods under the state’s Baker Act that allows police to send individuals for evaluation.

Milton’s brother, Ronnie Milton, said after such episodes he brother would appear fine but only for a time.

“I would see his personality changing,” he said. Then, his brother would ramble about filing lawsuits and a fear of breakins, he said.

Hozae Milton is currently listed as being held in the Duval County jail in lieu of $60,000 bail.
