FAYETTEVILLE (40/29 News) - The former Farmington High School principal charged with domestic battery and aggravated cruelty to a dog among several other charges, was acquitted because of a mental disease or defect.

The Washington County Prosecutor's Office said Christopher Webb was arrested in July after officers said they found him naked, covered in blood choking a woman. A dead dog, whose throat had been cut, was found in a nearby bathtub.

Webb was charged with several offenses, including domestic battery, aggravated cruelty to a dog, refusal to submit to arrest, and offenses committed in the presence of a child. His acquittal was based on a mental evaluation by the state.
