PLANTERSVILLE, Texas (FOX 26) -

The neighbor of a highly-respected dog trainer has been charged in the trainer's shooting death.

James Allen Bundage was charged with murder in the death of Phil McHale.

Bundage was taken into custody early Tuesday morning by Grimes County sheriff's deputies.

The shooting took place in the Stoneham community, west of Plantersville near the intersection of State Highway 105 and County Road 359, on Monday afternoon.

McHale contacted the Grimes County Sheriff's Office after 11 a.m. Monday and reported an argument and disturbance between he and Bundage, his neighbor. Bundage was nowhere to be found when deputies arrived.

More than one hour later, deputies returned, joined by Sheriff Don Sowell, to McHale's home in response to a 911 call. They found McHale's wounded body in the kennel area of his property.

McHale owned Ridgewood Kennels where he earned national accolades as a trainer of hunting dogs.
