University Park, Illinois, resident, Charles Clements, 69, a former Marine, is being held on a $3 million bond in connection with the fatal shooting last Sunday of 23-year-old Joshua Funches, ABC News reported.
Patricia Funches, the victim’s mother, said Clements followed her son home, pulled out his gun, and shot him.
Police say Joshua Funches’ fox terrier urinated on Clements’ lawn, leading to an exchange of words between the two men. When police arrived at the scene, they found Funches bleeding on the ground in front of a vacant house.
Funches, a father of two, suffered a single gunshot wound in the abdomen, and his death was ruled a homicide.
Clements was famous for the upkeep on his well-manicured lawn, winning several local beautification awards. He kept a sign posted on his mailbox urging letter carriers not to walk on his grass.

Back in April, the owners of Canine Fitness Center in Crownsville raised enough money to equip about half of Anne Arundel County’s 30 fire stations with oxygen masks for dogs.
Earlier this month, that effort paid off — or at least it did for Sadie, a six-pound toy fox terrier injured in a car crash.
Sadie was bleeding and apparently unconscious when rescuers from the Anne Arundel County Fire Department and the Odenton Volunteer Fire Department arrived. Rescuers managed to revive her with an adjustable oxygen mask designed to fit an animal’s snout. It was the first time the equipment was used to save the life of a pet, the fire department said.
“I think that them giving her oxygen as quickly as they did was the difference between life and death,” Beverly Sherman, 45, told the Baltimore Sun.
