A northeast Arkansas man faces animal cruelty charges after five puppies' throats were slit, authorities said.

Deputies with the Poinsett County sheriff's office said they were contacted Dec. 26 by a person who witnessed a man cutting the throats of several puppies and throwing their bodies into a ditch near the intersection of Arkansas 214 and Henderson Lane.

Authorities arrested Jerry Miller, 58, of Trumann on Saturday and charged him with five counts of cruelty to animals, according to a news release.

Deputies said the slain puppies were properly buried and that all dogs that remained at Miller's residence were removed with the help of the Harrisburg Animal Shelter, Trumann Animal Shelter and the Northeast Arkansas Humane Society.
