*Update* Dog beaten with Hammer and Buried Alive

A Forest Grove man,  Hyrum F. Long, 75, and his daughter, Susan Diane Johnson beat Johnson's dog, Molly in the head with a hammer and buried her up to her neck in dirt.  They claim she was sick and they thought it was the right thing to do.  A necropsy revealed (aside from the obvious injuries) prolonged neglect and that she had not eaten in several days.  
On Dec. 8, Johnson pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree animal neglect before Washington County Circuit Judge Rick Knapp.
Knapp sentenced Johnson to 90 days in jail, followed by two years' formal probation. She was also ordered to perform 100 hours of community service and cannot own any animals for five years.
Long is scheduled to be sentenced Feb. 3.
