NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman has admitted killing her neighbor’s small dog by throwing it into traffic during an argument over a parking space.

The Star-Ledger reports that 27-year-old Haniyyah Barnes, of Newark, pleaded guilty Tuesday to burglary, animal cruelty and theft charges.

Essex County prosecutors will recommend that she receive a six-year state prison term when she’s sentenced July 14. Barnes also would have to pay up to $2,600 in restitution and would be barred from owning, buying or living with animals for 10 years.

Barnes admitted breaking into her neighbor’s home, grabbing the 2-year-old Shih Tzu named Honey Bey and throwing the dog into oncoming traffic in August 2011, where she was struck by a vehicle and killed.
