A 26-year-old is accused of killing a puppy with a hammer.

Michael Berst of St. Paul pled no contest to felony mistreatment of animals and tampering with evidence for the incident, which happened back in April.

Court documents say he told a friend he struck the 6-month-old dog for relieving itself on the floor, and later used a hammer to kill it.

Berst is scheduled to be sentenced in February.
