STANTON, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say three boys accused of torturing and killing a cat in northeast Nebraska will be charged as juveniles.

The Stanton County Sheriff’s Office tells Sioux City television station KTIV (https://bit.ly/1LfuVw1 ) that the three boys will make their first appearances in court later this month.

Investigators say the incident was recorded using a cellphone, which has been seized as evidence.

The boys had faced felony animal abuse charges had they been prosecuted as adults.
