A man is in custody after a puppy was found beaten to death at an east Wichita home.
Around 11:30 Monday night, officers were dispatched to a home in the 2600 block of East Elm Street on a possible burglary. When they arrived and found the homeowner, they realized there had been no burglary.
While officers were still on scene, they found a dead puppy that appeared to have been beaten with a bat. They arrested a 26-year-old man for cruelty to animals, which is a felony under Magnum's Law.
Formal charges are pending.
