Woman allegedly placed puppy in hot oven, killing it

Posted: Updated:

URBANA, Ill. (AP) - A central Illinois woman faces charges of animal torture and aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly placing her former boyfriend's pit bull puppy in a hot oven, killing it.

A judge ordered 24-year-old Kinny Redmon of Champaign held on $250,000 bond Thursday.

Urbana police investigator Dave Smysor said Redmon and the former boyfriend fought on Wednesday, and the man got a call from her Thursday morning at work telling him to "go get yo' puppy out the oven." Smysor says the man returned home and found the 3-month-old puppy dead inside the 300-degree oven.

The News-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1SZfjnY ) police said an overwhelming stench came from the house.

It's unclear whether Redmon has an attorney.

This story has been corrected to show the woman's last name is Redmon, not Redmond.
