Symsonia man charged with animal cruelty

Staff report

A Symsonia man was arrested Thursday on charges of cruelty to animals and terroristic threatening for allegedly killing a cat, injuring a dog and threatening to burn down the owner's home, according to the Graves County Sheriff's Department.

The agency received a report that James Henderson, 18, of 1249 Ky. 348 W. in Symsonia, had shot a cat three times, broken a dog's ribs and threatened to burn the house of the caller to the ground. 

According to the sheriff's department, the woman said Henderson had shot and killed her cat two days earlier.

The woman, who was not identified, reported that she came home Wednesday to hear Henderson laughing and bragging about having broken her dog's ribs, and she noticed blood on the dog's side when she checked it for injuries. She said she confronted Henderson Thursday morning, and he threatened to burn her house.  

Sheriff's Deputy George Workman investigated and arrested Henderson on two counts of second-degree cruelty to animals and one count of third-degree terroristic threatening.
