Christopher Gugliuzza is charged with animal cruelty. The Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office said he tortured a kitten named Lennox this month and killed another cat named Misty in October. If convicted, Gugliuzza could face between six months and three years and fines of up to $10,000.
A woman told Bloomington police she witnessed the abuse and attempted to stop it. She also revealed that Gugliuzza had previously engaged in similar behavior, killing and torturing cats in the past.
He’s due back in court on Feb. 14.
