BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) – A Belleville man who admitted killing seven kittens is back behind bars after authorities in southwestern Illinois said he violated his probation.

Forty-seven-year-old Terry Roy pleaded guilty to aggravated cruelty to animals and was sentenced last July to two years of probation. The kittens were shot with a pellet gun and left in a Belleville park where they were found by a woman walking her dog.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Roy has now been sentenced to 30 days in the St. Clair County Jail after stalking charges violated his probation.

Authorities say Roy was convicted of a stalking charge in December, fined about $1,000 and given credit for 21 days served in prison. He also faces other charges.
