Man arrested for animal cruelty and assault charges in Murray County

By  | 

MURRAY COUNTY, Okla. (KXII) - The Murray County Sheriff's Office says 18- year -old Trusdon Ellett had threatened family members with a knife, hit one member over the head with a pool stick and shot and stabbed a cat last week.

Officials say during the investigation they learned Ellett hadn't slept in days prior to the incident and that he killed the cat because he thought the cat was after him and had looked at him funny.

Sheriff Darin Rogers believes Ellett may have been using meth due to the comments made during the investigation.

Ellett faces two assault charges and an animal cruelty charge.
