    LONG BEACH -
    Criminal charges were filed Thursday against a
    Big
    Kmart employee in connection with the beating death of
    a
    Chihuahua dog that had wandered into the
    chain's North Long
    Beach store.

    Paramount
    resident Norma Elizabeth Torrico, 24 used a 20-pound
    weight-lifting metal bar to kill the dog.
    Several store
    employees spoke to the Press-Telegram on condition
    of
    anonymity about the attack. They said the dog could be
    heard
    whimpering and was still alive when it was
    placed in a plastic bag.

    Another employee

    who did not give her name said Torrico still works at
    Kmart, but Thursday
    was her day off. Neither Torrico
    nor officials at Kmart's headquarters in
    Troy,
    Mich., could be reached for
    comment.
