Wis. woman accused of killing ex-boyfriend’s dog
LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) – A La Crosse woman is accused of breaking into her ex-boyfriend’s house and torturing his basset hound until it died. A La Crosse Tribune report (http://bit.ly/19Ao9TY ) says 32-year-old Selina Boulton was charged Wednesday with two misdemeanors. She’s accused of mistreating an animal and disorderly conduct. Prosecutors say she killed 13-year-old Jixer on Nov. 14 after arguing with her ex-boyfriend. Police found the dog dead on the floor. Its choke collar was cinched tightly around its neck and a frying pan was nearby. Court records say the dog also had fractured ribs, a collapsed lung and a cut consistent with a stab wound. A police report says Boulton didn’t seem to have any remorse that the dog was dead. Online court records didn’t list a defense attorney for her Thursday.
