A Detroit man was sentenced this month to at least 2 1/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to stabbing his motherís dog 21 times and then shooting the animal.

Anton Peterson, 21, pleaded guilty June 17 after a plea deal to felony killing/torturing animals and a felony firearm charge, said Maria Miller, assistant Wayne County prosecuting attorney. He also is required to receive a mental health evaluation while incarcerated and get mental health help when on parole.

The animal torture conviction includes a sentence of six months to four years that will be served consecutively with a two-year firearm felony conviction. A misdemeanor for animal cruelty was dismissed as a part of the deal.
