Girl kills cat in an oven

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Teen Cheyenne Cherry taunts animal activists after guilty plea for killing kitten in oven

BY Dorian Block
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER

Kitten killer Cheyenne Cherry can't own a pet for three years. Is that long enough?

No, she should be banned from ever owning a pet, period.

Yes, by then perhaps she'll learn to have compassion for animals.

A heartless kitty killer hissed angrily at animal rights activists Wednesday, grinning widely as she took credit for stuffing the helpless pet into a 500-degree oven.

"It's dead, bitch!" snapped an unrepentant Cheyenne Cherry, sticking her tongue out after a plea bargain that will put her behind bars for a year in the May 6 killing of tiny Tiger Lily.

Cherry, 17, was confronted after her guilty plea in Bronx Supreme Court to charges of animal cruelty and attempted burglary in the May 6 killing at her former roommate's apartment.

Tiger Lily was left to die inside the blistering oven after Cherry and a 14-year-old friend trashed the apartment of Valerie Hernandez, destroying furniture before stealing DVDs and food.

After her arrest, Cherry told police the cat killing was "just a joke."

In court Wednesday, Cherry admitted to Judge Margaret Clancy that the younger girl put the cat in the oven - and "I didn't let the cat out."

The pair fled the apartment because they didn't want to hear the dying cat's cries or desperate scratching at the oven door, authorities said.

The second girl is facing trial in Family Court because of her age. Prosecutor Jennifer Troiano said Cherry was granted a plea deal because her cohort was "more culpable" for the crimes.

Under the agreement, Cherry pleaded guilty to two charges in a six-count indictment. She waived her right to appeal and agreed not to keep a pet for the next three years. Cherry, jailed on a probation violation, faces formal sentencing July 31.

As she exited the courtroom, she passed a row of animal rights activists outraged by her crime.

"Justice for Tiger Lily," read one sign held by the demonstrators.

Sharon Tuerlings, 43, of Levittown, L.I., extended both her middle fingers and kissed them. Cherry grinned widely, stuck out her tongue and responded with her profane retort.

Cherry is not new to animal crimes.

She was busted last year for using a BB gun to dog-nap a teacup Yorkie with her boyfriend. She was also arrested for robbing a man of his iPod at gunpoint.

The dozen animal lovers who attended the hearing said they represented more than 20,000 people who signed an online petition supporting harsh punishment for Cherry.

They were thrilled by the deal that guaranteed Cherry would do time for the cruel killing. "She is dangerous," said Brooklyn cat owner Josie Marrero. "A very dangerous young lady."

Tuerlings said she wanted to get a glimpse of the monster behind the cat execution. "It felt so good to look at her ugly face," she said. "Those evil eyes that she has."

A criminal history, kill/torturing animals, no remorse......what are the chances she turns into a law-abiding, tax paying, model for the community? She is actually in jail right now, but on a probation violation. I bet she gets minimal if any time for this.

What a waste of a life.

Next time she's on trial for something like this she should probably wait until after sentencing to announce how proud she is of her crimes.

I'm sure there will be ample opportunity for that.

While what they did was clearly a case of animal cruelty, I don't really think that the cat would be crying / scratching for very long in a 500 F oven.

I approve of someone shoving this girl in an oven and roasting her.. and then serving her up to all the hungry doggies and kitties at the local animal shelter.

I have Tony Soprano's backing on this.

Well, I doubt they preheated the oven. I'm not sure what the normal preparation instructions are.

I swear, people like this are just serial killers in training. Give her the chair and be done with it.

The part about them running away because they didn't want to listen is the worst part. It just goes to show that they KNEW what they did was wrong.

So she gets her sentence in a few weeks?

She definitely is on her way.

That what it seems like. She is jailed on a probation violation....probably for either robbing that guy last year and/or for stealing a dog at gun point. I usually don't wish harm on someone, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if she tried to rob someone and they shot and killed her. I have no respect for anyone who steals, or anyone that tortures/kills animals.

Re: Girl kills cat in an oven

Yeah....it was kind of a downer.

I formerly worked with some really troubled kids (who have done this and worse), and unfortunately it is more common than the general public would like to realize. Sometimes therapy can help, but other times people are just hardwired to not have the ability nor want for empathy or real connection. I still think about a former pt. I worked with for quite awhile, and I'm still not sure if they ever had a moment of empathy. It is a scary thought when you think about the implications of that.

This is the kind of girl who'll be putting her kid in the oven 10 years down the road cause she's mad at the baby's daddy.

Yeah, she's one fucked up little punkass bitch that should be put down before future ventures. Still I chuckled at the "It's dead, bitch!" to the animal rights activists.

Re: Girl kills cat in an oven

It's awful. But so is the idea that if she were an adult, she'd spend more time in jail for this than manslaughter.
