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.
