New York man admits to killing girlfriend's kitten

A New York City graphic designer accused of surreptitiously killing a series of his girlfriend's cats has admitted slaying one of them, a kitten found with a broken neck.

Sean Lynde pleaded guilty Monday to charges including aggravated animal cruelty. His case is set to be closed without jail time or probation if he attends therapy and meets other conditions.

In his plea deal, the 36-year-old acknowledged killing only a kitten called Bonafide in January 2009. He was initially charged with killing five of his now-ex-girlfriend's pets and torturing a sixth cat.

Authorities say the unsuspecting woman kept adopting new cats to replace the ones that died.
