SHARE Downstate woman accused of killing ex-boyfriend’s puppy in hot oven

URBANA, Ill. — A central Illinois woman faces charges of animal torture and aggravated cruelty to animals for allegedly placing her former boyfriend’s pit bull puppy in a hot oven, killing it.

A judge ordered Kinny Redmon, 24, of Champaign, held on $250,000 bond Thursday.

Urbana Police investigator Dave Smysor said Redmon and the former boyfriend fought on Wednesday, and the man got a call from her Thursday morning at work telling him to “go get yo’ puppy out the oven.”

Smysor said the man returned home and found the 3-month-old puppy dead inside the 300-degree oven.

The News-Gazette reports that police said an overwhelming stench came from the house.

It’s unclear whether Redmon has an attorney.
