March 18, 2010

Johnson County woman Katherine Brotherton, 36, faces two counts of animal abuse after admitting to police she set her two dogs on fire. County Prosecutor Brad Cooper called the case extremely disturbing. She told police the dogs had been biting her and thought it was the most humane way to kill them. The dogs are expected to recover from their burns. They were taken to the Johnson County animal control shelter and may be put up for adoption.
