An Oklahoma City woman was arrested Thursday in the death of her dog.
Police said they found Sammie Rebecca Bruhwiler, 22, covered in blood and holding the dog’s body at 12:15 a.m. Thursday outside her northwest Oklahoma City home.
An officer followed a trail of blood into Bruhwiler’s home and into the bathroom, where the officer found two bloody knives. An animal control officer said the dog also had been suffocated or strangled.
Bruhwiler was arrested on an animal cruelty complaint. She was booked into the Oklahoma County jail, where she remained Friday morning with bail set at $2,000.
