ST. CHARLES, Ill. (AP) - A 23-year-old Aurora man has been convicted in a violent 2013 home invasion.

Quinten Mullen was convicted by a judge late Tuesday on charges that included armed robbery, armed violence and animal cruelty. The Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office announced the conviction on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say Mullen and another man who hasn’t been identified entered the victims’ home in North Aurora last March.

They say the other man threatened to shoot the two victims if they did not remain on a sofa while Mullen went upstairs in search of a safe he knew contained money. The gunman shot and killed the victims’ dog before the men fled with the safe and money.

Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon says the victims knew Mullen and considered him a friend.
