LOS ANGELES (AP) - A Los Angeles man who was caught on video running over his estranged wife's Chihuahua has been sentenced to a year and four months in prison.

LA County prosecutors say 45-year-old Michael David Parker received the sentence on Monday.

Last week, Parker pleaded no contest to animal cruelty.

Authorities said Parker took the 5 ½-year-old dog named Cow Cow to a Hawthorne alley on Dec. 28, ran it over and left the dog to die.

A nearby resident found the dog and put its body in a bag. Police says they tracked down the car from surveillance camera video and Parker was arrested a few days later.
