A Chicago man has been charged with killing a kitten by throwing it three stories into the air.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports 43-year-old Lamar Rogers was charged Sunday with one felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals.
Prosecutors say he picked up the kitten and threw it as high as a third-floor balcony. It fell to its death in the backyard of a South Side apartment building. A neighbor saw the incident and called police.
A Cook County judge ordered Rogers held on $100,000 bail. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.
