Aaron Bellor, 22, of Bay City was arraigned in front of Bay County District Judge Dawn A. Klida on Wednesday and charged with one count of killing and torturing an animal after allegedly admitting to running over his dog twice and killing it reports the Michigan.

According to Bay County Sheriff's Lt. Jim Chlebowski, Bellor was preparing food on the stove on January 22, when a pan with scalding water spilled and burned Bellor's schnauzer named Sassy.

Bellor panicked, and not knowing what to do, put the dog outside to freeze to death, but then decided to take the dog to a neighborhood nearby where he threw the dog out of his car and ran over her. When he saw that Sassy was still alive, he ran over her again.

A witness called authorities.

Bellor told Judge Klida he turned himself into authorities two days later.

Sadly, a friend who could not afford to care for Sassy gave Bellor the dog. Chlebowski stated the burns on Sassy were not that serious that she could have been treated and recovered.

If found guilty of felony animal cruelty, Bellor faces up to four years in prison and a maximum $5,000 fine. Bellor is free on bond.
