Burnett County (WQOW) - An area man is sentenced after authorities say he killed his girlfriend's dog.

On Thursday, Curtis Sutherland of Grantsburg was ordered to pay restitution for a disorderly conduct charge. He was also ordered to: pursue entry into the military, complete an anger management program and complete a psychological evaluation.

The criminal complaint says, in December 2008, a pure-bred miniature Schnauzer was found dead after spending time with Sutherland. Investigators say the animal died from blunt force trauma.

Sutherland claims the dog "collapsed" while he was giving it a bath. The owner filed for a restraining order against him.
