A Bay City man has been charged and arraigned with brutally killing his dog.
If the details of the case prove to be true, they are thoroughly disturbing. According to court documents, Aaron Bellor confessed to killing his dog, a schnauzer named Sassy.
Prosecutors allege that Bellor accidentally spilled boiling water on his pet. The documents state that Bellor panicked and put the dog in the bathtub. He then told police he left the dog outside to freeze to death, but then decided to run the dog over repeatedly until she died.
A witness first notified authorities after claiming to see a man hit a dog. Two days later, Bellor turned himself in.
Bellor is currently free on bond. If convicted, he faces a possible sentence of up to four years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
