LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The man suspected of killing several cats was indicted on felony charges Thursday.
24-year-old Alex Phelps of Bullitt County is facing five counts of animal cruelty after police say he bought cats online using Craigslist.
Investigators say he later admitted to stabbing them, but claims he was doing medical research. The cats were found dumped in several places in southern Jefferson County and in Bullitt County, where he's also facing charges.
Phelps has pleaded not guilty in both courts. He could face a maximum sentence of 20 years. He remains in custody at the Louisville Metro Department of Corrections.
