A 28-year-old Wichita man accused of trying to kill his girlfriend also is being investigated for possible animal abuse after video surfaced of the woman’s kitten being thrown against a wall.
The Wichita Eagle reports the man, whose case will be presented to prosecutors on Tuesday, was jailed Friday on suspicion of attempted first-degree murder. He is accused of shooting a man his 23-year-old girlfriend brought home to protect her after she and the suspect got into an altercation late Thursday at a local night club.
The suspect was taken into custody the next morning.
A Snapchat video shows the girlfriend’s kitten being twice thrown against a wall. The 16-week-old kitten was taken to a veterinarian for treatment but was later euthanized because of its injuries.
