A Des Moines woman hanged one of her boyfriend's three dogs in his garage, telling police she killed the pet because it was old and sick.
Twenty-eight-year-old Sheena Cornwell was arrested Saturday night after her boyfriend came home to discover the dog. Des Moines Police Officer Greg Catron says Cornwell didn't seem to appear remorseful about killing Lily, who was a pit bull mix.
Cornwell was released a few hours after her arrest. She faces a charge of animal torture.
Cornwell's boyfriend told police he wanted to get a restraining order against her.
