Plea for Md. man charged with killing caged kitten

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — An Anne Arundel County man charged in West Virginia with killing a caged kitten has accepted a plea deal.

Twenty-three-year-old Justin Michael Beall of Pasadena is charged in Berkeley County with felony animal cruelty. Court records show he agreed last week to plead guilty to misdemeanor animal cruelty.

Berkeley Court assistant prosecutor Timothy D. Helman tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown, Md., that a judge could order Beall to serve up to six months in jail, perform community service and undergo counseling and anger management.

Beall is accused of shooting the kitten multiple times with a BB gun as it was held in a metal cage under a home in the Hedgesville area.
