A Michigan man has been sentenced to prison after he fatally stabbed a dog he had adopted. Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith announced in a news release that Alex Gerth, 23, was sentenced to three to six years in prison after he entered a no contest plea last month to killing/torturing the animal. While sentencing guidelines pertaining to the case advised two to 21 months in prison, Smith requested the judge for a harsher punishment due to the brutal nature of Gerth's crime, People reports.
