MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama State Board of Pardons and Paroles denied the parole of Juan Daniels Tuesday morning.
Daniels was convicted and sentenced to 9 years in prison for the beating and burning of his family dog, Louis Vuitton, in 2007. The motive was said to be anger because Daniels was not allowed to use the family car.
Louis Vuitton, named after the famous fashion designer, suffered severe burns and wounds to most of his body and was cared for by the Montgomery Humane Society until he recovered. The pit-bull has since been adopted by another family.
The case sparked outrage across Alabama, the nation and the world. During initial reports, WSFA 12 News received letters from viewers as far away as Brazil wanting to know the condition of "Louis".
WSFA 12 News is planning coverage on Alabama Live! at 11:00am and the news at noon.
