A West Hartford man is accused of killing a kitten, severely injuring another and killing a pet rat, police said.
Officers responded to an apartment on Sky View Drive on Wednesday for reports that someone had killed kittens inside the residence.
Police found one kitten was dead after it was hit in the head with a TV remote. Another kitten was found severely injured after it was shot at with a BB gun, West Hartford police said.
It was also reported that the same suspect, 22-year-old Corey McCall, had killed a pet rat in the same apartment a few days earlier. Police said McCall also assaulted his girlfriend.
McCall is accused of two counts of cruelty to animals, disorderly conduct, assault, unlawful discharge of a firearm and possession of less than four ounces of marijuana.
His bond was set at $150,000.
