(KSL News) Today the Senate could give final approval to a bill that would make deliberate torture of an animal a third-degree felony.

The animal abuse bill is in honor of Henry, the little dog placed in an oven by a man last year.

The measure won approval in a floor vote. There will be one more formal reading today before the bill heads to the House.
