No-contest plea in deaths of dogs

From the Associated Press

A Los Angeles pharmacist has pleaded no contest to killing his two dogs and putting one of them in the freezer.

Keith Chung entered his plea Thursday to felony animal cruelty. He faces up to two years in prison. He was arrested last year in the beating deaths of his two schnauzers.

His lawyer says the 41-year-old will undergo a 90-day examination at a state corrections facility and return to court Dec. 18 for sentencing.
