ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

An Odessa doctor has been indicted in connection with an animal cruelty investigation.

Dr. Robert Kevin Lynch was indicted on two counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals stemming from two separate incidents in December of 2016.

Lynch was named Chief of Surgery at Odessa Regional Hospital in 2010.

Odessa police said back in January 2017, he confessed to poisoning three dogs with raw meat mixed with Advil, antifreeze, rat poison and grapes.

Odessa police say Lynch fed two large dogs, Yuki and Brownie, and one small dog, Zoe, toxic substances.

Yuki had kidney failure, Brownie went into respiratory cardiac arrest, both dogs died. Zoe survived her injuries.

No word yet when the trial for Lynch will begin.
