Too many swearwords to say what I want
What pathetic excuses for members of the human race...the whole 3 of the oxygen theives
At least the mongrel is sitting in jail.
EVERETT, Wash. -- Prosecutors said an Arlington man accused of torturing the family dog to death allegedly told his girlfriend he was coming for her next, but his girlfriend says she doesn't want her boyfriend to go to jail, reported KIRO 7 Eyewitness News.
Norman Sandretzky, 41, listened to the accusations from jail while prosecutors in a Snohomish County courtroom Tuesday read the gruesome details of what the man allegedly did to Stephanie Swanson's pit bull Bucky.
Snohomish County Prosecutor Coleen St. Clair said Sandretzky is accused of beating the dog with a hammer and drilling holes in the animal with a drill.
Sandretzky's girlfriend, Swanson, said the accusations are true but she doesn't want him in jail.
She said Sandretzky was on medication for depression following a serious car crash, but after he lost his job, he no longer could afford the medication.
Swanson said the man accused of killing her dog is not the same man she's been with for 17 years.
"This is not the man I know. Not the man I love," said Swanson.
"Are you afraid on him?" asked KIRO 7 reporter Lee Stoll.
"Drunk, yes. Sober, no," said Swanson.
Prosecutors said in addition to attacking Swanson's dog, Sandretzky called Swanson and said "she was next."
Sandretzky's sister, who declined to be identified, said the accusations are false and that her brother only killed the dog after it attacked some chickens.
"It's a pit bull. It's a mean little dog. So it was not animal cruelty," she said.
Sandretzky's bail was set at $500,000. He has no criminal history.
