Convicted dog killer’s stay request rejected


KINGSTON – The Appellate Division of
State Supreme Court denied convicted dog killer Matthew Miller’s
application for an order staying the execution of his sentence or for
bail pending appeal.
Following an Ulster County Court jury trial, Miller was convicted of aggravated cruelty to animals for killing a nine-year-old dog. He was sentenced in early April to one year in the county jail and forfeiture of his right to own animals in the future. He remains in jail.
This is the second trial in Ulster County Court where a defendant was convicted of felony aggravated cruelty to animals. District Attorney Holley Carnright said it demonstrates his office’s “continued commitment to vigorously prosecute such cases.”
