LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -

A Nebraska woman has been charged with breaking into her ex-boyfriend's home and stealing the dog they once shared.

   The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the 21-year-old woman and her 23-year-old fiancee were both charged Friday.

   Lincoln Police officer Katie Flood says the ex-boyfriend returned home Thursday to find his sliding glass door had been forced open, and his blind and deaf dachshund named Charlii was missing.

   The ex-boyfriend told police that his ex-girlfriend had recently challenged his ownership of Charlii even though he had been caring for the dog ever since they broke up two years ago.

   When police contacted the woman she denied stealing the dog until Charlii wandered out from the back of the apartment.
