Jacksonville man arrested after dogs killed, apartment burned

Two dogs were killed after a fire seriously damaged a San Marco apartment,police calling it a case of arson and animal cruelty after arresting a neighbor.

A 44-year-old San Marco man was arrested after two dogs were attacked and killed with a machete before the apartment they lived in on Flagler Avenue was set on fire, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.

Gerald Frank Norvil Allen of Flagler Avenue was charged Nov. 26 with arson and two counts of animal cruelty, and remains behind bars ineligible for bail, according to Duval County jail records.

Officers were called out about 2 p.m. to the apartment complex on Cedar Street after Jacksonville Fire and Rescue was sent there to a fire, the arrest report said. Firefighters found “a wall full of blood and a machete with blood on it” when they got inside, along with two dead dogs, the report said.

Police said their own search confirmed a wall covered with blood, a bloody machete on a couch, and two burned dogs in a corner, the report said. Allen, a next door neighbor, was detained for questioning, talking to himself and grabbing at his stomach, saying he “wanted to get it out,” the report said.

Day-Day, a pit bull, and Coco, a Chihuahua and dachshund mix, were killed in the fire, victim Amy Koerner told Times-Union news partner First Coast News. She said her apartment was destroyed, losing almost everything inside as well as pets she considered family, now lost “in a brutal way.”

“They found a machete, there’s blood all over the place, like piles of blood on the walls, on the ceiling, on everything,” Koerner said. “There’s gashes on the wall where I guess he missed.”

Koerner said Allen began acting strange a week before, knocking on their door to ask them to turn off their WiFi because he was scared that “evil spirits were attacking all of us.”

A GoFundMe account has been set up by a friend at gofundme.com/f/victim-of-arson-needs-help to pay for the pet’s cremation, replace items damaged by the fire and help pay expenses to move to a new apartment.
