ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - An Albuquerque man has been arrested and accused of killing a dog because it chewed his couch.
Police say a woman was visiting family friend Marshall Aragón and noticed his puppy was bleeding from the mouth and nose.
Aragón, 45, told the woman he grabbed the puppy by the neck and squeezed until the animal stopped moving, according to authorities. He then said he blew in the puppy's mouth and brought it back to life.
The puppy eventually died from its injuries.
Aragón told police he was mad at the puppy for chewing his couch and has anger issues.
He is charged with extreme cruelty to animals and remains in the Metropolitan Detention Center under a $20,000 bond, according to MDC records.

The New Mexico State Police officer who fired his weapon at van filled with kids during a traffic stop gone bad has been fired.
