WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A southeast Iowa man is accused of killing a cat.

Billy Lee Kracht is being charged with animal torture.

According to authorities, Kracht hanged his family cat from the ceiling.

He was arrested Wednesday.

The Des Moines County Sheriff's Office report that deputies went to the Danville man's home last Friday after he reported his cat was killed by a burglar.

Deputies found the cat hanging from a leash and Kracht's six kids crying.

Kracht later admitted he got upset when he found the cat out of its cage.
