BAY CITY, MI (WLNS) – A jury has convicted a 23-year-old Bay City man on an animal killing charge for running over a badly burned schnauzer with his car.

The Bay County Circuit Court jury on Thursday found Aaron A. Bellor guilty of a felony charge of unlawfully killing an animal and a misdemeanor charge of failing to adequately care for an animal.

Our media partners at MLive say the dog, named Sassy, was killed on Jan. 22, 2014.

A sheriff’s detective says Bellor told him that he accidentally poured boiling water on the schnauzer while making breakfast and its fur fell out, so he ran the dog over to put it out of its misery.

Sentencing is March 30. The charges carry a maximum of four years in prison.
