FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) – A Fairfield man accused of abusing and bleaching his cat died a short time later.
Fairfield Police said in August they received a report from a veterinary clinic caring for a cat with serious and suspicious injuries.
According to authorities, the cat was covered in bleach and showed signs of injury. The cat later died from its injuries.
Police said upon investigation, veterinarians discovered the cat died of trauma caused by the force of the impact.
Police say Raymond Neuberger, 38, of Fairfield, was responsible for the cat’s death.
“This investigation found that Neuberger engaged in violent, familial conduct and a separate arrest warrant has been completed,” Fairfield police said.
Neuberger was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and cruelty to animals.
Authorities said he was released on a $30,000 fine and will be due in Bridgeport Superior Court on Wednesday.
Fairfield’s first female pick, Brenda Kupchick, released a statement about the arrest:
