Officers with the Washington C.H. Police Department and a humane agent with the Fayette Regional Humane Society, responded to an apartment on Forest Street in November, after a kitten was killed. The kitten was removed from a garbage container behind the apartment, and transported to where its body was examined by Executive Director Dr. Lee Schrader.

“Apparently the kitten had been injured and it was killed in an attempt to end its suffering.” said Brad Adams, chief humane agent

Hebb was originally arraigned in the Washington C.H. Municipal Court on November 13, 2018, and pleaded guilty to Prohibitions Concerning Animals, but changed his plea to ‘not guilty’ during his sentencing hearing on November 16th.
