A man charged with burying his Rottweiler's nine newborn puppies while they were still alive has pleaded no contest to animal cruelty charges. Robert Homrighous, who is to be sentenced April 28, faces up to a year in jail under state guidelines. Assistant State Atty. Max Leuchter said Wednesday that he would ask the court to exceed the guidelines because of the "cruel, heinous and atrocious nature of the crime."
