Steven Geisel, 49, was charged with animal cruelty for allegedly beating and killing Bella, who was owned by a relative that lives in the community.

The female pit bull suffered traumatic injuries to her neck. Police state that it seems the dog’s neck was stomped on repeatedly.

Public tips and the investigation led to the charges against Geisel. The charges can carry jail time, fines, and community service if he is convicted.

According to Atlantic County SPCA’s Facebook page, additional charges for the neglect of three dogs in the home are being filed against Steven Geisel, Sr., Jr., Kristen Geisel, and Danny Cruz. Their court date is set for February 21 at 9 a.m.

Two other dogs, Baby Blue and Bandit, have been removed from the home.
