Police were called to the home and said they arrested Glenn William Lacoss, 55, after he told them he killed the cat because it was scratching his trees.
Investigators said Lacoss told police he was upset there were feral cats in his backyard.
Her owner believes Lacoss beat the cat and then hanged her from the fence, letting her strangle to death.
According to the DA’s office, markings on the fence show Sweetie struggled before she died a horrific, slow death.
Records show that Lacoss was to appear in court on January 23, 2017 for "Hearing-Sentencing". My bet is they gave him probation with no jail time.
