Garcia then stormed out of the building, leaving his distraught mother with her dying pet, it’s claimed.
A neighbour helped Garcia’s mom rush Roxy to a vet, but the dog was pronounced dead on arrival.
The vet said the impact had “caused (Roxy’s) heart to burst, eventually bleeding to death”, KSAT 12 reported.
