Two New Orleans police officers have been charged in connection with the unrelated deaths of their K-9 dogs.

The New Orleans district attorney's office filed bills of information Thursday against Officer Jason Lewis and Sgt. Randy Lewis, The Times-Picayune reported.

Jason Lewis' dog, Primo, died last summer of heat exhaustion after he apparently was left in the officer's vehicle. Lewis was charged with aggravated cruelty to animals.

Randy Lewis' dog, Phantom, fell down an elevator shaft. He was charged in a bill of information with malfeasance in office.
