Cat killer jailed for stabbing estranged wife's pet
CAT killer Andrew Beese has been jailed for stabbing his estranged wife’s pet to death after a domestic row.
The 60-year-old, of Bisley Old Road, Stroud, who earlier admitted causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal, was today put behind bars for 14 weeks.
Cheltenham magistrates court heard this morning that Beese stabbed the cat after a bust-up with his enstranged wife Helen Bond on December 29 last year.
Nick Sutton, for the RSPCA, said the cat called “Koko”, was nursing four kittens. Beese stabbed her with a knife and threw the body over a fence after Mrs Bond stormed out.

“He said he killed it as a matter of spite,” said Mr Sutton.
Mrs Bond was escorted out of the court after she pleaded with the bench for leniency.
“He is sick”, she shouted. “He is bi-polar.”
Beese was also banned from keeping animals for 20 years.
After the hearing Inspector Philip Mann of the RSPCA said the injuries caused to the cat were among the ten worst he had seen in 21 years.
“He does not deserve the right to have animals in his home,” Mr Mann said.
