Prison time for man who kidnapped and killed dog

A 19-year-old man who kidnapped and killed a former friend’s dog will be spending time behind bars for the cruel crime. According to multiple sources, Christopher Roberts, of Elizabethville, Pennsylvania, has been sentenced to 11 ½ to 23 months in prison for killing a nine-year-old mixed breed dog named Bella.

As reported by ABC 27 News, Bella belonged to a former “close” friend of Roberts – the cruel killing took place approximately one year after Bella’s owner ended their relationship.

The heinous crime

Roberts planned out the heinous crime – breaking into Bella’s home and taking her a mile away before stabbing her. As reported by PennLive, the dog knew Roberts and willingly left with him. Heartbreaking details of her death were released…Roberts stated that the friendly dog was wagging her tail, and looking to him for help, even as he stabbed her.

Roberts pleaded guilty to the charges and has admitted that he knows what he did was wrong. Despite admitting that he knew his actions were wrong…it was not his first transgression against an animal. According to PennLive, Roberts has admitted to hurting a cat in the past.

In addition to prison time and probation, Roberts is ordered to pay a fine, restitution to Bella’s family, and perform community service.

    What an asshole! I hope karma comes around and one day he is faced with someone doing the same to him. No wonder the relationship between him and the dogs owner ended.

    What kind of “restitution” could this POS ever make that would make up for what he did to this poor dog! 11 1/2 to 23 months is nothing and a fine and community service will do nothing to make what he did right! I doubt that it will even matter to this worthless piece of flesh. Anyone that could kill a dog wagging her tail, and looking to him for help, even as he stabbed her has no heart or conscience! He doesn’t need to walk this earth.

    This is why penalties need to be stiffer! Bella loved and trusted her murderer and must have died utterly confused and betrayed, while he used as if she were nothing more than an object to make a former friend suffer.

    Someone that evil should be either kept behind bars for life or snuffed out as the murdering scumbag he is.

    RIP Bella ~ jail is where he belongs if he has such little value for life that he would be such a coward as to stab an innocent dog that trusted him that shows what kind of human he is pure evil and there are too many pure evil humans walking among us. I really wish they would all spontaneously combust.

    This Son of a Bitch is just getting started with his heinous murders of innocent/ helpless animal’s. Next it will be a human. Who and what kind of person could steal a friends dog no matter the circumstance, take the animal who trusted you, stabbing it as it lay there helpless and begging for it’s life?? I’m asking the incompetent judge who sentenced this POS. Who will be released without any rehabilitation, so he will come out of prison even sicker than when he goes in? Look you cannot fix a person so incredibly fucked up, he really should have gotten life without the possibility of being released. I hope his family is proud of the cruel and twisted bastard they raised. He makes me sick!!
