every article refers to him as a writer, but 2 tv scripts in 30 years makes him a failed writer in my book.

Believe thee me, this was NO 'accident.' His poor, sweet, innocent doggy suffered a blowing boxer's punch and he/she could NOT DEFEND ITSELF!!

I was going to say that I hope he takes anger management classes, etc., but I hope he also spends the maximum sentence behind bars allowed for this crime. I know they can't ask Mrs. Shuttleworth any questions, under oath, about her domestic bliss with this killer, since she can't be forced to testify against him legally, but if there is anything that she could say in this regard, I hope she considers this incident her wake-up call.

What a creep. His wife's remark does make me wonder how many head punches she's taken. i hope he gets the year in jail. Even longer would be better for killing the poor dog.

This very cruel man deserves at least a year in prison if not more! You never punch a person or a dog in the face. He also must have done it very hard to cause traumatic brain injury! It has all the markings of intentional cruelty- trying to cause this dog as much pain as he could. This was no accident! Shame on that wife for covering up for this man's horrific deed. If he had done that to her, would it have been an accident then?
