Prosecutors say a Memphis man has been sentenced to one year and four months in prison for killing a puppy by putting it in a dishwasher.

In a news release, Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich says 27-year-old Marcus Curry has pleaded guilty to felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty.

Last June, witnesses told Memphis police investigators that Curry put the dog in his dishwasher, turned it on and left it running.

Police said that the puppy, a small mixed-breed named Daisy, was not moving when Curry opened the dishwasher.
