BRIGHTON--The Brighton Police Department is investigating after a family says a neighbor's dog came into their home and killed their dog.

“Yoda" is the Sanchez family’s 9-year-old Chihuahua, who they say was killed inside their home over the weekend.

There is now a chalk message outside of the Sanchez home that says, "Justice for Yoda!"

The Sanchez family says this is the second time in a month that dogs from next door have gotten through or under a fence and made their way into the home using the dog door.

“It’s just a 'Fear Factor' here," said Yoda’s owner, LeRoy Sanchez.

A judge will hear the case on Sept. 24.

For now, the Sanchez family has installed security cameras and has placed a plastic cover over the dog door.
