WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A Wichita man was sentenced to more than 20 years in prison for shooting another man and throwing a kitten against a wall, causing it to be euthanized.
Twenty-nine-year-old Damion Looney was sentenced Thursday after being found guilty in November of several charges.
District Attorney Marc Bennett said in a statement that Looney shot Quinton Edwards at a home in July 2015 after Looney argued with his girlfriend in a Wichita bar. The shooting caused Edwards to lose an eye.
While investigating the shooting, authorities discovered a video showing Looney throwing a kitten against a wall. The animal was later euthanized.
Looney pleaded guilty to felony cruelty to animals in that case.
