Las Cruces, NM-Carlos Sanchez-Trillo, 20, has a nasty temper when things do not go his way. Last Wednesday, officers responded to a report of domestic violence where they found a 3-5 month old Chihuahua mix named Lucky badly injured. The officers learned that Sanchez-Trillo had become angry when his 18-year old girlfriend had returned home late from giving blood. Sanchez-Trillo allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by her arm, twisted it behind her back, and removed a ring on one of her fingers.
Sanchez-Trillo then told his girlfriend her dog, Lucky, which had began going into seizures, was going to die because it was left outside in the heat too long. But two witnesses at the residence told police that Sanchez-Trillo had submerged the dog in the bathtub in an attempt to drown it and then threw it against a wall. Sanchez-Trillo then beat the dog with with a rolled-up magazine. Unfortunately, Lucky did not live up to his name and was later euthanized by county animal control officers. Sanchez-Trillo was charged with battery against a household member and one fourth-degree felony count of extreme animal cruelty.
Besides Lucky, there were two other Chihuahua-mixes in the residence as well as three pit bulls. Sanchez-Trillo allegedly threw his sister’s Chihuahua down a flight of stairs two months ago, breaking one of its legs. One of the witnesses claimed Sanchez-Trillo had also previously punched one of his dogs in the face and ran over another dog, breaking its leg as well. They said that as a child, Sanchez-Trillo had a habit of blowing up frogs with firecrackers. Sanchez-Trillo was being detained under a no-bond hold for violating probation for a previous aggravated burglary and larceny charge.
