PHOENIX (AP) - Court records show a Phoenix man was arrested after telling police he had to beat his cat to death because he couldn’t find anyone to adopt it.

Police were called out to a house on Wednesday after a neighbor saw 54-year-old James Henry Fox using a hammer to beat a cat, according to court documents.

Police arrived and found that Fox had left the home. They also found blood and a cat that had recently been killed.

Fox is facing one count of animal cruelty.
