Drunk jailed for stabbing wife’s cat
A drunken man who stabbed his wife’s cat to death out of spite during a row has been jailed.
Alcoholic Andrew Beese, 60, used a knife to kill five-year-old Koko before throwing the cat’s body over his garden fence.
Beese, whose wife was in court to support him, was jailed for 14 weeks by JPs at Cheltenham Magistrates’ Court after admitting a charge of causing unnecessary suffering.
The defendant, of Bisley Old Road, Stroud, Gloucestershire, showed no emotion as he was led away to begin his sentence.
