LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The man charged with shooting his dog three times in the face in Owensboro, Ky. was back in court June 12.

Matthew Beauchamp is charged with torturing Lad, a border collie. Several of Lad's supporters showed up for the hearing.

The Arrow Fund flew Lad to Louisville, where he received treatment.

Lad had been in California for weeks awaiting reconstructive jaw surgery, but he experienced a major setback with a blood clot causing his oxygen levels to drop.

Lad died this week from complications with that surgery.
