Staten Island man sentenced for tossing cat out window

NEW YORK (AP) -

A Staten Island man will spend four months in jail for throwing his ex-girlfriend's cat from an eighth-floor apartment balcony.

Buriell Jones was sentenced Monday. The Staten Island Advance reported that he pleaded guilty earlier this month to a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

The woman's pet, named Cat, died Oct. 2.

ASPCA spokesman Joseph Pentangelo said the 7-year-old black and white feline hit an iron fence before slamming into the ground.
