In Maine, New York, a Broome County teen remains in jail this week after authorities state that he stomped his aunt’s Chihuahua to death, threw the pup’s body in a stream and then lied about the home having been burglarized. On Monday police arrested 18-year-old Kyle Corbin.
According to the Press Connects, Broome County Sheriff’s Office stated when Corbin’s aunt returned home, she found a pool of blood on the carpet and her dog missing. Allegedly Corbin had called his aunt and told her their mobile home had been burglarized. During the investigation, however deputies discovered her nephew killed the small Chihuahua by stomping on it with his foot and then threw the dog’s lifeless body in the creek behind the trailer.
Corbin is reported to have just moved from Florida less than a month ago to live with his aunt. No motive has been announced. Corbin is being held in jail without bail and has been charged with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals. If convicted of the felony charge, he faces up to two years in state prison.
Rest in peace tiny Chihuahua.
