ANTIGO, Wis. (WMTV) -- A Wisconsin man is now facing charges for allegedly killing a puppy while he was babysitting it.
Jordan Bultman, 22 of Antigo, Wis., is expected to be formally charged with mistreatment of animals resulting in death, sister station WSAW reports.
According to court documents, Bultman was babysitting a 12-week-old puppy named Rex when, according to Bultman, Rex fell down some steps and died.
According to Rex's owner, Rex was healthy as could be before she left Rex with Bultman, according to documents.
But when the owner returned, Rex was dead in his kennel, according to the documents.
A necropsy showed Rex died of multiple blunt-force trauma, WSAW reports. Court documents state a fall was ruled out as the cause of death.
