Teens Could Spend 25 Years in Prison for Allegedly Torturing Cat, Setting It on Fire

Two teenagers could spend 25 years in prison for allegedly torturing and killing a cat they set on fire when they broke into an apartment in New York City.

Angelo Monderoy, 18, and Matthew Cooper, 17, allegedly broke into a vacant apartment in Brooklyn, N.Y., on or around Oct. 7, 2008. Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes said the pair held the cat down as they poured charcoal lighter fluid on it.

Hynes said they then set the animal on fire, causing deep wounds and fourth-degree burns. The blaze also damaged the building, which has other units that are occupied.

The cat was found outside, unable to move and crying but still alive, the district attorney said.

It was euthanized at a local animal hospital.

The ASPCA launched an extensive investigation leading to the capture of Monderoy and Cooper, who were indicted this week in Brooklyn, according to the district attorney.

They face charges of second-degree arson, second-degree burglary and aggravated animal cruelty and could spend up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

Cooper also was recently charged with burglary and assault in an unrelated incident in the same building in which he and another defendant are charged with breaking into an apartment and beating the sleeping tenant with a cane while they demanded money.

Never make someone a priority in your life when that someone treats you like an option.

I would love to be the one to mete out the punishment. Especially while attempting to stop smoking while still taking large doses of prednisone. I SOOOOOO want to set them on fire. And I am quite sincere about that. I feel vicious.
