BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (AP) -- A central Illinois man charged earlier this month with torturing and killing pigs has been accused of child pornography and sexual abuse.

The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports Quentin Getty was charged with soliciting and disseminating pornographic images of a minor girl with whom he was acquainted. He's also accused of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

The 22-year-old from Arrowsmith has been in custody on charges he shot two pigs with a crossbow and then slit the animals' throats. Authorities found evidence of the pigs in the trunk of his vehicle.

Getty was on probation for shooting a cow with a crossbow in 2010 and has also been charged with residential burglary for a Dec. 27 break-in.

He was being held on $100,025 bail and could not be reached for comment.
