A man in Saratoga County, near Albany, has been convicted of aggravated cruelty to animals for killing his dog.
Aaron Brinkley kicked and beat his Boston Terrier, named Riko, to death with a hammer.
Police say Brinkley told them the dog bit him, so he retaliated.
He now faces a maximum of two years in jail when he's sentenced.
