JUNCTION CITY (AP) — A Junction City man was sentenced to one year of probation for killing his girlfriend’s cat by stuffing cigarettes and cotton swabs down its throat.

KMAN reported William Lemieux Jr., who had pleaded no contest to animal cruelty in November, was sentenced Friday in Geary County District Court.

Lemieux also was ordered to pay costs and not to contact his girlfriend. He also is not allowed to have pets and must follow all recommendations from a domestic violence assessment and a drug and alcohol evaluation.

Lemieux’s girlfriend found her cat dead in a bag in a trash can near her home. Assistant County Attorney Michelle Brown said a veterinarian later found three cigarettes and a cotton swab jammed in the cat’s throat.
