Fifty-seven-year-old Philip Hollenbeak faces charges stemming from the death of his Chesapeake Bay retriever.

Monmouth County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals chief Victor Amato tells the Asbury Park Press Hollenbeak put a choking collar on the 130-pound dog, attached a leash and swung the leash over a closet door.

Amato says Hollenbeak then called police on Tuesday to remove the dead animal.
