A Schuylkill County man is facing charges after allegedly beating a dog to death with a frying pan.

State Police say Jason Brown, 19, of Tower City, allegedly gave the dog nicotine and then beat the dog with a frying pan, until it stopped breathing. Police say the incident happened after the dog nipped at a 2-year-old girl and another woman.

Brown then allegedly drove to a remote location in Porter Township, Schuylkill County to dispose of the dog's body.

Police say the dog's owner was at work when the incident happened and his daughter called Brown to let him know the dog nipped at her.
