NEKOOSA, Wis. -- A Wood County man is accused of breaking into his sister's home and killing her kitten.
A WSAW-TV report says 25-year-old Brian Sentkowski of Nekoosa is charged with mistreating an animal. He's due in court next month.
His sister says someone entered her Saratoga home around Thanksgiving. She says there was a large spot of blood in the living room and her kitten was missing.
The criminal complaint quotes Sentkowski as telling investigators he came over and became enraged when no one was home. He says he was also upset with himself for drinking.
The complaint says he told detectives he took out his anger on the first thing he saw -- the kitten. Prosecutors say he stabbed it to death.
Online court records didn't list a defense attorney.
