Man faces felony for stabbing his friend's dog

Man faces felony for allegedly stabbing friend’s dog 55 times

A 33-year-old man in the Bronx is facing a charge of felony animal cruelty for allegedly stabbing his friend’s young dog 55 times. According to the New York Times, the accused man, identified as Stephen Richardson, repeatedly stabbed his friend’s 18-month-old pit bull, Onyx, until she died.

The accused dog killer allegedly attacked Onyx after the dog bit him while they were playing at a park in late December. Richardson admitted to hitting the dog while they were at the park and then later, “took him out of his misery” with a knife in the bathtub of his residence. The dog suffered multiple stab wounds on his face and neck. Onyx’s owner found her bloodied and mangled dog in Richardson’s bathtub later the same day.

The authorities arrested Richardson on December 29 – the day of the deadly incident. If convicted of the felony charge, Richardson could face up to two years in prison.

    I hope he gets stabbed to death in prison so he can see what that poor baby went through, only I hope he gets it up the ass first. We don’t need low life scums like that breathing air.

    Hope Stephen Richardson gets dissected in prison. We will be watching courts as this cannot develop into a minor punishment. Poor innocent Onyx never had a chance with this dumb ass.

    Please, release his name and address so his neighbors can give him the justice he really deserves. He is a coward and feels like a big man killing his friends dog like this. Do not leave him out with any children because he would do something to them if they bit his finger. What a slime and deserves justice by inmates. They will take good care of him. RIP Onyx, you were not to have your life end so soon and so violently where you suffered immeasurable pain by the psycho. His family and friends need to shun him and never have, even his enemies, talk to him. Do the same to him that he did to Onyx.

      If the dog bit him..don’t you think he should have complained to the owner and not have stabbed him? Something tells me the owner was not not concerned.

    RIP Onyx! I think this man either was not bitten or provoked it as an excuse to brutally murder another living being! My only questions are why are they allowing him to continue to live and are there any missing people he may have also killed?

    Another hunk of maggot shit who deserves to be hogtied and dumped off the highest building in the Bronx. Two years is no more than a slap on the wrist – Richardson is a danger to all, animals and humans. His actions are so cruel and ridiculous – there was no reason for stabbing Onyx 55 times – not even one time. I hope there is a shank in jail awaiting him. He deserves no less.

    Really!!! Two years is a joke. The pain this dog went through is enormous. Can only hope he gets like treatment in jail for its certain the law won’t give justice.
