FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - A Fort Worth man who killed and tortured a number of dogs has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Court records show 32-year-old Harrison Hilliard pleaded guilty to charges that he killed one of his neighbor's dogs in November of 2017, and wounded another.

Special prosecutor Michelle Dobson says police were able to link a number of other attacks to Hilliard.

The case was prosecuted under a new law that allows longer prison time. An old law would have only allowed prosecutors to seek a two year, state jail term.
