KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) — A Kearney man has been sentenced to a year in jail for brutally beating and stabbing his dog to death before burying the animal in his back yard. 22-year-old Khaleem Baringer was sentenced Monday in Buffalo County District Court for felony intentional cruelty to an animal. He had faced up to three years in prison. A witness told police Baringer hit the Blue Heeler mix repeatedly with a baseball bat after it defecated on the floor and nipped at a woman as she tried to place the dog into a kennel. Investigators say Baringer left the dog for dead in a bathtub, then later stabbed the dog after discovering it still alive.
