UPDATE: Wis. woman accused of killing ex-boyfriend's dog

UPDATED Thursday, December 19, 2013 --- 10:33 a.m.

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse woman is accused of breaking into her ex-boyfriend's house and torturing his basset hound until it died.

A La Crosse Tribune report says 32-year-old Selina Boulton was charged Wednesday with two misdemeanors. She's accused of mistreating an animal and disorderly conduct.

Prosecutors say she killed 13-year-old Jixer on Nov. 14 after arguing with her ex-boyfriend.

Police found the dog dead on the floor. Its choke collar was cinched tightly around its neck and a frying pan was nearby. Court records say the dog also had fractured ribs, a collapsed lung and a cut consistent with a stab wound.

A police report says Boulton didn't seem to have any remorse that the dog was dead.

Online court records didn't list a defense attorney for her Thursday.

LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- A La Crosse woman could face animal cruelty charges after her boyfriend's dog was found dead.

Police say the 32-year-old woman broke into the man's apartment early Thursday and strangled the basset hound, Jixer, with a choke collar. The man told police he and the woman had been out that night, but he wouldn't allow her in his apartment.

The La Crosse Tribune says the woman faces charges of mistreating an animal causing death, disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property when she appears Tuesday in La Crosse County Circuit Court.
