WILSONVILLE, Ore. — Wilsonville police say a man who told them he’d been drinking and taking prescription medication has called them to confess to killing a puppy hours after buying it for $300 from a pet store.

The police identified the man Monday as 28-year-old Kevin Lee Slabaugh. He’s accused of aggravated animal abuse.

The police said he called 911 Sunday morning to report killing the 2-month-old dog the night before. Officers said he led them to the body, showed them the kitchen knife he used, but couldn’t offer an explanation for his actions.
