TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Terre Haute Police say a man deliberately killed his girlfriend’s dog after she confronted him about stolen money.

A woman said she confronted her boyfriend, Brandon Franklin, about stealing $20 and an ATM card from her, as well as taking her mother’s SUV without permission.

During an argument, she said Franklin picked up her year-and-a-half old Pomeranian, and threw him against a wall. The Animal Clinic said the dog died from severe head trauma.

Franklin is in the Vigo County Jail on $20,000 bond.
