On October 24, James Garcia asked his mother if he could bring a woman into the house so he could have sex with her in his bedroom. After his mother denied him permission to do so, he started arguing which lead to Garcia picking up his mother's small dog and hurling it about 18 feet
SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS: A 39-year-old man threw his mother's dog across the house, killing it, after being denied permission to have sex. According to the affidavit, obtained by News4SA, James Garcia lived with his parents on and off in San Antonio for four years.
On October 24, he asked his mother if he could bring a woman into the house so he could have sex with her in his bedroom. After his mother denied him permission to do so, he started arguing with her.
As the argument between the two heated up, Garcia picked up his mother's small dog and hurled it across the house -- about 18 feet -- causing it to land on the hard floor of the kitchen. The accused then left the dying pet with his mother and stormed out of the house.
A neighbor finally came to his mother's aid, helping her rush the canine to a nearby veterinarian’s office, but it was of no use. The dog was declared dead after a while.
The veterinarian said the throw was so violent that it “caused [Roxy’s] heart to burst, eventually bleeding to death,” KSAT reported. While the police were investigating the crime scene, Garcia returned home and apologized for hurting the dog.
He added that he had come back to pick up some of his things from the house and "he didn't like hurting the dog," according to the affidavit. Garcia is facing animal cruelty charges. He was taken into police custody Saturday, November 9, but is now out on a $5,000 bond.
Animal cruelty is a felony in Texas, punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000. The criminal law only applies to animals such as house pets, livestock and wild animals "subject to a person’s care and control," according to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
