LIMESTONE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - A man charged with killing 22 kittens that he bought on Craigslist will go to trial next month.
A Limestone County Circuit Court judge has set a Sept. 14 trial date for 50-year-old Ronald Golden of Athens.
He was charged with 22 counts of animal cruelty in October 2013.
According to police, Golden told officers he was angry at the world and stomped or strangled the kittens inside his home.
His attorney says Golden has a history of mental illness, and has been hospitalized several times.
