From the Daily News:
Cops arrested a heartless Queens woman for savagely beating her dog, stuffing it in a suitcase and dumping it in a trash can down the block from her home.
The battered pooch, a 9-year-old male poodle, died from its injuries a few hours after being rescued.
Sonia Perez, 21, was charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal and torturing an animal. She was still in custody last night.
Neighbors found the shivering, mortally wounded poodle late Tuesday night in the trash can down the street from where Perez lives on 54th Place in Maspeth.
