URBANA, Ill. (AP) – A central Illinois woman faces charges of animal torture and aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly placing her former boyfriend’s pit bull puppy in a hot oven, killing it.
A judge ordered 24-year-old Kinny Redmon of Champaign held on $250,000 bond Thursday.
Urbana police investigator Dave Smysor said Redmon and the former boyfriend had a fight on Wednesday, and the man got a call from her Thursday morning at work telling him to “go get yo’ puppy out the oven.” Smysor says the man returned home and found the oven on, set at 300 degrees, and a chair pushed up against its door. The 3-month-old puppy was dead inside.
The News-Gazette reports police said an overwhelming stench came from the house.
It’s not clear whether Redmon has an attorney.
