LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

A Lake Charles man is accused of killing his girlfriend's dog.

The Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office responded to a domestic violence call at 8117 Gulf Highway Friday night.

Once there, the victim told deputies that Tiffany Nocosia's boyfriend, Sean Collette, 24, killed her dog - a small teddy bear poodle.

Collette is also accused of beating Nicosia. She was treated at a local hospital and released.

According to Nocosia, Collette would not let her leave the home and eventually took the dog and threw it across the room into a wall at least six times.

"He grabs my dog and slings her across the room against a wall. I go to pick her up ... she still is breathing and twitching so I started to try and revive her. He comes and says I'm gong to make sure that dog is dead and continues to throw her against the wall," said Nocosia. "A four-pound little innocent dog. She then defecates and he rubs it in my face."  

Calcasieu Animal Control agents came out and took the dog for evidence.

Collette was booked into the Calcasieu Correctional Center charged with second-degree battery and aggravated cruelty to an animal. At last check, no bond has been set in this case.
