(Memphis) A Memphis man has been indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on felony charges of aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly putting a puppy in a dishwasher and killing it.

Marcus Curry, 27, was also indicted on misdemeanor charges of “cruelty to animals for allegedly leaving the same small dog, a mix-breed named Daisy, tied to the porch with no food or water prior to the dishwasher incident.”

Prosecutors say the incidents happened in June of last year at Curry’s apartment in the 2800 block of Meadowlake Drive in the Fox Meadows area.

Memphis Police Department investigators were told by witnesses Curry put the dog in the dishwasher, turned it on, and left it running.

Workmen later found the dog’s body in a dumpster and notified police.

Curry is scheduled to be in Criminal Court on March 26.

Aggravated animal cruelty carries punishment of up to six years in prison.

Animal cruelty is a misdemeanor that carries up to 11 months and 29 days in jail.

Curry also is accused of fraudulent use of his great aunt’s credit card, on which he charged $600 without her authorization.

He is being held in the Shelby County Jail on bonds totaling $50,000 on the pending cases.

    Yes, I agree. I live here and this kinda thing is all the time. Like last week they had five shootings in one night. It almost makes you want to go to a mountain top build a cabin and live off the land to get away from it. Which if I owned land on a mountain, I would be gone already.

    This guy is a special kind of stupid. I hope he gets the worst treatment imaginable by the law and his peers in jail.

    Someone should take him stuff his A$$ in the dishwasher probably in several pieces but make him suffer. I bet David Carter isn’t your real name and you sound about worthless as this A$$ MUNCH. You are probably foaming off at the mouth just to get people started. I hope a dog eats your Dumb A$$ up. Like if you were the mailman.

    Didn’t have condolences or anything to say after a young ladies killer was finally found after 3 years, but mess with a dog and you’re everything but a child of GOD.

    When he said he left it in there too long; he must know because he obviously did it before. The guy that said how stupid it was, was more concerned about it being a place for dishes than the poor helpless animal. All dogs want to do is please a human; that is their life and I am sick to death of animal abusers and I fear our city has a ton of them!
