MONTGOMERY COUNTY, KY (WAVE) – An eastern Kentucky woman is behind bars accused of trying to kill her neighbor over a missing cat.
Janie Grooms, 53, was arrested and charged with attempted murder. Investigators said there had been an ongoing issue involving Janie Grooms' pets. Police said one of the cats caused damage to a neighbor's car, so that neighbor put out a live trap catching the cat.
Janie Grooms is accused of confronting the neighbor with a gun and then firing it at him repeatedly.
"She thinks the world of the cats. Me and her don't have no kids together. And she looks at them as her kids. If he had any issues with the cats, he should've come talk to me. Whatever it was, I would've took care of it," said Kevin Grooms, suspect's husband.
