The man accused of shooting and killing four dogs in his wife’s care — three of which belonged to her — has taken a plea deal.
The Bryan Times says Phil Taylor pleaded no contest to one count of felony animal cruelty, and pleaded guilty to one count of possessing a firearm under disability.
The deal drops three additional counts of animal cruelty and a count of felony menacing.
Taylor will face sentencing on October 30th. He could spend up to four years in prison and pay over $15,000 in fines.
He is currently confined to his mother’s house while on bond, though he’s been allowed to remove his ankle monitor.
Phil Taylor is the husband of Theresa Taylor, who is currently facing animal cruelty charges of her own in a separate case in Fulton County.
