PETERSBURG, Ind. (AP) — A southwestern Indiana man has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years in jail for allegedly killing and burning his ex-girlfriend’s two dogs.

Jordan Hunt was sentenced Monday after a Pike County jury convicted him in May of felony domestic violence animal cruelty.

WFIE-TV reports the Hazleton man was arrested last September after police say he entered the Evansville home of a woman he had formerly dated and stole, shot and burned her golden doodle and pit bull-lab mix.

Their burned remains were found about 40 miles (64 kilometers) north of Evansville.

Deputy Prosecutor Sarah Christianson told jurors during Hunt’s trial that he intended to hurt his ex-girlfriend after she told him their relationship was over.

Christianson told jurors that, “He knows what her entire world is. It’s her two dogs.”
