Tewksbury Man Charged in Bizarre Animal Cruelty Case
Man is charged in the deaths of five cats that had been gifts to his girlfriend.
A Tewksbury man was arraigned in Ayer District Court this week, accused of killing five cats belonging to his girlfriend.
Fabio Finn, 28, of 298 Lancaster Drive, pled not guilty to five counts of animal cruelty. He was released on his own recognizance, according to a story published in the Sentinel and Enterprise.
The case has bizarre circumstances, as Finn's (now ex) girlfriend told police that each of the cats he allegedly killed he had bought for her between July and August 2011. She said each time he gave her a new cat, he killed it a short time later, according to the Sentinel and Enterprise story.
A sixth cat, which Finn claims to have given to a friend in January, remains unaccounted for. As part of his release, the judge told Finn he is not allowed to own any animals.
