Court Appearances Next Week In Alpaca Deaths – CBS Connecticut

Court Appearances Next Week In Alpaca Deaths

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Two Westbrook men face court appearances in the next week on charges related to the stabbing deaths of four alpacas that a prosecutor said were killed for pure sport.

Twenty-one-year-old Kyle Roscetti and 23-year-old Shawn Malcarne were arrested last month on animal cruelty and other charges.

Four dead alpacas were found stabbed to death on an Essex farm on Dec. 23. Police say a nose ring found at the scene led them to their suspects.

Roscetti is due in Middletown Superior court on Monday. Malcarne’s next court appearance is scheduled for Friday.
