ZAGREB, Croatia -- A Croatian court sentenced a man to 12 years in jail for sexually abusing his wife, including forcing her to have intercourse with dogs, reports said.

The Croatian Supreme Court ruled the 47-year-old Osijek, Croatia, man, whose name was withheld, was guilty of raping his wife, 33, and forcing her to perform the sexual act with their three dogs, the 24 Sata daily said Tuesday.

Early in 2008, the man suspected his wife was cheating on him. He then raped and beat her before going after her alleged lover.

In the meantime, the wife told her mother who informed police.

Before officers arrived, however, the man brought the alleged lover to the couple's apartment, and forced him and the wife to engage in intercourse, the daily said.
