WOODRUFF, S.C. — Brandon Burdette, 20, (pictured left) and Jonathan Phillips, 18, have been charged with felony animal cruelty after an incident involving a black kitten named Mischief.

The kitten’s owner, Jennifer Ingle, 23, shared a residence with Burdette and other friends. Mischief was a stray she had taken in about a month ago, and Burdette had recently moved in with Ingle. Burdette had been complaining about the kitten’s meowing and the fact that he was allergic to the cat. Instead of letting Ingle find a place to take the cat, he and Phillips decided to carry the kitten up the road to give it away. But Burdette took the kitten out of Phillips hands and proceeded to saw off Mischief’s head with a serrated kitchen knife.

Felony animal cruelty carries a penalty of up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
