OKLAHOMA CITY - You might recall this story we told you about a year-and-a-half ago, about Lucy the dog.

Officials say an intruder, later identified as Paul Factor, stabbed Lucy in the face at Beck's Garage in Oklahoma City in 2013.

Factor, who is charged with animal cruelty, will face his sentencing Friday and Lucy’s owners are hoping to get justice for their beloved pet.

"We just love her to death," said Jeff Beck.

Now Lucy is left with a scar.

"It went in just under the eye, just into the eye globe and into the sinus cavity," said Jeff Beck.

Factor, a former Yukon Middle School teacher, later pleaded guilty to jumping the fence and stabbing Lucy in the head with a four inch blade.

"When I look at the photographs and think about what she must have gone through, how that must of felt, think about it yourself," said Theresa Beck.

The Becks are anxiously awaiting Factor's sentencing for animal cruelty charges Friday.

They’re hoping he’ll spend time in prison for what he allegedly did to their dog.

They also hope fellow animal lovers will show up in support.

"She doesn't have a voice so this is our opportunity to say hey, what you did to her was wrong," said Beck.

Factor's attorney said his client drank too much alcohol at a nearby business the night of the break-in.

He allegedly tried to kick in someone’s back door and jumped the fence at Beck’s Garage when he came face to face with Lucy.

"We won't stand for it, we will speak up for our animals and we would like to see people who do harm to them serve serious time," said Beck.

"We want nothing but a long healthy life for our animals," said Jeff Beck.

Factor was arrested almost nine months after the crime happened.

In addition to animal cruelty charges, he’s also been charged with burglary and assault with a dangerous weapon.

The sentencing hearing is on Friday at 10:00 a.m.
