DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say a second person has been arrested in connection with an animal cruelty case in which two animals were allegedly denied emergency care and euthanized.

Authorities say 29-year-old Kathy Seton, of Cold Spring, New York, was charged Wednesday in Danbury with two counts of animal cruelty.

Her boss, 55-year-old Richard Doyle, is facing three counts of the same charge for allegedly failing to properly care for two dogs and a kitten at American Breeders pets shop. He was arrested Monday.

The arrests result from a four-month investigation by animal control officers from the state Department of Agriculture.

Doyle has not responded to requests for comment. Employees at American Breeders told WVIT-TV Wednesday and Thursday that no one was available to comment on the case.
