Argument over barking dog leads to death

A former Marine who was hospitalized after a fight over a barking dog died Sunday in a Massachusetts hospital.

Brian Cherry, 48, of Abington, suffered severe brain injuries when he was punched and hit his head on ground, according to an Associated Press report.

He’d been hospitalized since July 6 when Michael McGunigle, 49, allegedly punched him in the head outside a coffee shop after Cherry suggested McGunigle better restrain his dog . The dog, even though inside his car, was menacing passers-by, police said.

McGunigle is free on bail after pleading not guilty to aggravated assault. The Plymouth District Attorney’s office is awaiting autopsy results before determining whether new charges are filed.
