MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man accused of taping shut a dog’s mouth, beating the animal, shooting it in the head and throwing the carcass in a garbage bin last fall will undergo a psychological exam.

Defense attorney David Dusek this week requested a two-month delay in the case of 28-year-old James Music, and the judge agreed over the objections of prosecutors.

Music faces a felony animal cruelty charge that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/22nHYKK ) that he’s due back in court May 25 for a pretrial conference.
