A man accused of killing a puppy by putting it in a running dishwasher was indicted Thursday by a Shelby County Grand Jury on felony charges of cruelty to animals, according to Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich.
Workers found the dog’s body in a dumpster and notified police.
Curry was also indicted on misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty by the grand jury. Those charges allege Curry left the same dog, a small mixed-breed named Daisy, tied to the porch of his Fox Meadows-area apartment last June with no food or water.
Curry could face up to six years in prison for the aggravated animal cruelty charges related to the dishwasher incident. The misdemeanor animal cruelty charges carry a maximum jail sentence of 11 months and 29 days. He is scheduled in Criminal Court on March 26.
Curry is also up on charges of charging $600 on his great aunt’s credit card without her authorization. He’s due in General Sessions Criminal Court on that case on March 12.
Curry is now being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $50,000 for all of the pending cases.
