Des Moines man sentenced to prison for killing puppy

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) A Des Moines man has been sentenced to a maximum of two years in prison for killing a puppy by snapping its neck.

The Des Moines Register reports that 26-year-old Christopher Vogel was sentenced Thursday and ordered to pay a $650 fine. He pleaded guilty in November to animal abuse in the killing of a Corgi puppy named Baby.

Police say Vogel went to a friend's apartment and asked the neighbors if he could use their Wi-Fi password, then killed their 12-week-old dog when they refused his request.
