SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Divers looking for evidence in the killing of a woman at a San Francisco pier found something else - a dead cat - and the owner is now facing animal cruelty charges.

The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/1M8eCpF ) says police divers working at Pier 14 reported finding the cat on July 2 - one day after Kathryn Steinle was shot to death.

The cat, a 2-year-old brown tabby named Kazuma, was in a bag submerged by a 10-pound weight.

The cat had an injected microchip and city animal control officers tracked down and arrested the owner.

Thirty-four-year-old Adrian Dumont pleaded not guilty to felony animal cruelty on Tuesday and is free on bail.

Divers also recovered the pistol allegedly used by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez. He’s pleaded not guilty to Steinle’s murder.
