A man from West Haven is facing animal cruelty charges after being accused of killing his girlfriend's dog.
Lynx Tribuce, 36, was arrested last week by Cromwell police after they said he kicked his girlfriend's Chihuahua during an argument and killed it.
The incident was reported in August.
Police said Tribuce will appear in court next week.
