A Lyons man accused of putting his grandmother's little dog in a hot oven pleaded guilty to aggravated animal abuse.

Kevin Parrish entered his plea Wednesday and was sentenced to 30 days in jail and five years probation.

Parrish, 20, was arrested after attacking a 6-year-old Chihuahua-pinscher mix named Kudo.

Investigators said his grandmother, who he lives with on North Fork Road, went out of town and left the dog in Parrish's care.

Deputies said Parrish admitted to losing his temper when the dog nipped at him. Deputies said he grabbed the dog, choked it and punched it in the head.

Parrish had been preparing lunch before the attack started and had the oven heated to 350 degrees. Parrish told deputies he put Kudo in the hot oven and was prepared to leave the animal in there, but his brother entered the house and eventually confronted him about it.

The suspect's brother and father took the dog to the veterinarian for treatment.

The veterinarian told deputies Kudo had lost the knowledge of his leg location from the abuse and was unable to stand properly.

Parrish does not have any previous criminal history.

As part of his sentence, Parrish is not allowed to possess domestic animals for 15 years and he must submit to a mental health evaluation and recommended treatments.

There is a one-year additional jail sentence that was suspended, but will be imposed if Parrish violates his probation.
