Miami, Florida – A Florida man will serve 10 years in prison after being accused of beating a pit bull puppy, stabbing it 50 times, and stuffing it into a suitcase while the dog was clinging to life.
According to his lawyer, Michael Gottlieb, a 35-year-old Brendan Evans of Hollywood agreed to plead guilty four years after the attack on Ollie the pit bull. The dog died two days after being discovered.
The attack on the Ollie caused an international outcry.
According to the reports, Evans first denied being involved, but investigators found cat paws and rats with severed heads in his freezer, bloodstains in his bathroom, and dried blood and animal fur in his oven.
Since his arrest four years ago, Evans has been held in jail.
According to Gottlieb, Evans was initially charged with 17 counts of animal cruelty but prosecutors dropped 15 in exchange for the guilty plea.
