Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - A Warren man who killed a pet cat after an argument with his girlfriend is going to jail.

34-year old Jaycen Leapline appeared in Warren Municipal Court Tuesday, where he pleaded guilty to a charge of killing or injuring animals.

Judge Terry Ivanchek sentenced Leapline to sixty days in jail.

According to a police report filed back in May, a Warren woman said Leapline threatened to do something if the cat was not removed from their home.

The woman says that after taking her daughter to school, she returned home to find the cat dead in the yard.

The judge also placed Leapline on probation for five years.
