REVERE, Mass. (AP) - Two men accused of running an illegal dog kennel and breeding business have been charged with killing two puppies and leaving them in a trash bag.

Jason Gentry, of Swampscott, pleaded not guilty Tuesday to several charges of animal cruelty and the malicious killing of an animal.

Prosecutors say 34-year-old Gentry and a 51-year-old New York man killed dogs they were breeding and training.

Authorities started investigating in November 2014 when two puppies were found dead inside a trash bag behind a Revere gas station. Police say the puppies were killed for not meeting breeding standards.

The investigation is ongoing.

Gentry’s attorney says he is innocent and did not hurt any animals.
