Woman arrested for hanging dog

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

A central Iowa woman has been arrested for hanging one of her boyfriend's three dogs in the garage.  Police say she killed the dog because it was old and sick.

28-year-old Sheena Cornwell was arrested Saturday evening after her boyfriend came home to discover the dog.

Des Moines Police Officer Greg Catron says Cornwell didn't seem to appear remorseful about killing Lily, who was a pit bull mix.

Cornwell was released a few hours after her arrest but her phone number was disconnected. She faces a charge of animal torture.

Cornwell's boyfriend told police he wanted to get a restraining order against her
