Hutchinson police say a couple has killed a kitten by taking turns throwing it against doors and walls.

Det. Curtis Black said the suspects were upset that the 5-month-old yellow tabby kept “using the restroom inside.”

Authorities found the dead kitten in the couple’s home Saturday while responding to a disturbance.

The animal’s body was taken from the home for a necropsy to be performed.

The couple was arrested and released on bond.
