MONTICELLO (AP) – A Monticello man faces animal cruelty and torture charges for allegedly skinning and baking his pet cat.

The charges allege 28-year-old Cody Alexander Mann killed his cat because “he wanted to try cooking it with onions.”

According to the complaint filed in Wright County, Mann’s father contacted police after his son started making “strange comments.” Additionally, the apartment manager called law enforcement to report a burning smell in Mann’s apartment.

A deputy entered the apartment Monday and found the cat’s body inside the oven, and the cat’s skin and entrails inside the freezer.

Mann reportedly has a history of drug abuse and mental illness. He is in jail after making a court appearance Wednesday.
