Witnesses said that last June they saw Marcus Curry, 27, put his small, mixed-breed dog, Daisy, in his dishwasher, turn it on, and then left it running. Those witnesses told Memphis Police Department that the dog was not moving when Curry opened the dishwasher later. Workers found the dog’s body in a dumpster and notified police.

Curry pleaded guilty in criminal court to felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty.
