-- Phoenix police have arrested a man in the death of a dog that was kicked and thrown before it died.

Sgt. Steve Martos said witnesses reported seeing the year-old pit bull collapse on the ground in front of an apartment complex after it was attacked Thursday night.

Mark Baxter, 30, was arrested on suspicion of one count of felony animal cruelty.
