Witcher told the judge that he is not a violent person and didn’t commit the heinous act on purpose. But the officer who responded to the domestic dispute call on that day disagreed. Cincinnati Police Officer Kelly Reindl said she found the kitten’s dead body outside of the apartment. Reindl said had she known that kitten was outside earlier she would have possibly been able to save it. Witcher’s lawyer told the judge that his client suffers from mental issues that stem from a 2010 car accident that injured his brain.

“The cat had scratched me which caused me to have a bad reaction,” Witcher told the judge, admitting “I know I need some psychological help.”

Witcher was also charged with obstructing official business, disorderly conduct and criminal damaging in addition to the cruelty to animals count. The original domestic dispute charge was dropped after his girlfriend failed to show up in court for the second time for that case. The judge ruled that Witcher cannot own pets for 15 years.
