Man Arrested for Killing Kitten and Biting the Lips off Another

PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) _ A central Florida man faces an animal cruelty charge after authorities say he killed at least one kitten and bit the lips off another.

Flagler County deputies arrested 28-year-old Angel Vega Roman this past weekend.

Authorities say Roman had been living in a Palm Coast home with two other people.

He was left to care for several kittens earlier this month when the housemates when out of town.

The housemates told deputies that Roman admitted to killing one kitten and biting another.

Roman had also asked to give away two kittens while the housemates were away, and it’s unclear what happened to those animals.

The housemates also told deputies Roman had burned several other cats.

Roman was being held on $100,000 bail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
