EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - An Eau Claire man is due back in court a week from Tuesday, after he was accused of killing a dachshund by slitting the dog's throat.  

18-year-old Christopher Bong is charged with a felony count of causing an animal's death by mistreatment -- plus two misdemeanors of disorderly conduct and illegally carrying a concealed weapon.  

The dog was owned by a 15-year-old girl, and prosecutors said her mother apparently wanted the seven-year-old animal dead because it attacked her. Bong was arrested after he showed up at another woman's house May 10th with blood on his hands.  

Officials said he told the woman he had just killed the dog. The girl told officers that she and the dog had met Bong -- and he offered to take the pet back to her house, but she never told him to the kill it.
