La Crosse woman accused of killing ex-boyfriend's dog

Posted: Updated:

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

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.
