MOSS POINT, Miss. (AP) - Moss Point police say a 23-year-old woman has turned herself in to face charges related to a much-viewed video of a man pouring what appears to be hot liquid on a cat in a small cage.

Interim Police Chief Brandon Ashley tells news media that Karmen Coleman turned herself in Friday and was charged with criminal assistance. The charge carries up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Police tell The Mississippi Press (https://bit.ly/2hRg1Zx ) that the cat was found dead near the home where the video was made. WLOX-TV (https://bit.ly/2hasjIG ) reports that it died from burns over most of its body.

Police and District Attorney Tony Lawrence say calls flooded in about the video.

The Sun Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2hkD1Bf ) that police believe one or two men were involved.
