LAS VEGAS -- Two 11-year-olds accused of animal cruelty that led to the death of six kittens appeared in Clark County Family Court Monday afternoon.
A judge ordered house arrest for the boys. They are required to wear ankle monitoring until Oct. 30 when the judge will decide if the case will go to trial.
The boys were caught after neighbors told police they saw them throwing rocks against a building in the area of the 9600 block of West Russell Road in the southwest Las Vegas valley. It was later discovered they were throwing the rocks at a cat giving birth.
The preteens each face seven counts of animal cruelty.
