Connecticut man slams ex-girlfriend against the wall, and beheads four of her kittens for breaking up with him
21-year-old Kahlil Ivey has been charged with four counts of cruelty to animals, burglary, assault, and breach of peace
Police in Waterbury, Connecticut have arrested a 21-year-old man over animal cruelty. 21-year-old Kahlil Ivey was apprehended by the police after he was found to have broken into his ex-girlfriend's home and killed and dismembered her kittens.
According to the Republican-American, the incident is said to have taken place sometime in late September after Ivey's then-girlfriend tried to break off their relationship. The 20-year-old girl told police that she had dated Ivey for about nine months, but that she wanted to end things after he became increasingly violent towards her.
Recounting the events of the day, the girl said that Ivey walked into her home while her front door was open. In fact, the door had been open because repairmen had been called to the home to fix a window that the 21-year-old had broken during a previous argument at her residence, she said.
She said that Ivey slammed her up against a wall and she ran to the repairmen in the other room to alert them of his presence and to get them to call the police to the house. When the 21-year-old heard her cries for help, she says he threw a bowl of spaghetti at her in anger. It would hit her square in the chest.
But before the authorities could arrive at the scene, Ivey had already fled. They would comb the area in search for him but would have no success in finding or apprehending him. It's here that they reportedly saw the same woman near a convenience waving for help once again.
It turned out that Ivey had returned to the home once again as the police departed and banged on the door. Scared, the ex-girlfriend had fled and sought shelter at the store. Ivey would use the opportunity to kill four of the 20-year-old's kittens, leaving the girl horrified.
The Republican-American reported that the police found two kittens in a bedroom closet, another on the floor of her son's room, and the head of a fourth in a hallway. Despite a cursory search of the home, they were unable to find the body of the beheaded kitten.
When police informed the girl of what had transpired within the home, the girl is said to have broken down and yelled, "Why would he do that?" and "How can somebody do that?" Ivey would be caught later, but not before he sent a taunting text to the girl that read, "So, we killing cats now?" and was accompanied by a laughing emoji with tears in its eyes.
Ivey has been charged with four counts of cruelty to animals, burglary, assault, and breach of peace over the incident. He's currently being held on bonds that total over $60,000 and is due to appear at the Waterbury Superior Court next month for his hearing.
