Marcus Curry, 27, pleaded guilty this week in Criminal Court to felony charges of aggravated animal cruelty for the death of the small mixed-breed puppy named Daisy.
The incident occurred in June of last year at Curry’s apartment in the 2800 block of Meadowlake Drive in the Fox Meadows area.
Witnesses told Memphis Police Department investigators that Curry put the dog in the dishwasher, turned it on and left it running. When Curry later opened the dishwasher the dog was not moving, police said.
The case was handled by assistant district attorney Kevin Rardin.
