Police say a Connecticut has been arrested after being accused of killing his girlfriend's cat.

According to the Naugatuck Police Department, officers responded to an apartment on North Main Street in Naugatuck on Sunday, December 9, after it was reported that a possible domestic dispute was taking place.

Police say that when the officers arrived on the scene, an investigation determined that the accused, 25-year-old Christopher Monteleone (pictured above) had allegedly killed his girlfriend's cat. Investigators believe that the cat’s death stemmed from a history of domestic abuse toward both the victim and her pet.

Once officers located the physical evidence, the feline's remains were reportedly taken to UCONN Necropsy Lab for further evaluation.

Monteleone was arrested on the scene, taken into custody and charged with cruelty to animals. He was held on a $100,000 bond and has since appeared at Waterbury Superior Court for arraignment.
