He was charged in August after his ex returned to her apartment but could not find her kitten. She admitted throwing Riley violently to the ground and throwing the body in a dumpster.

The 35-year-old Sicilian first went to police on Thursday asking to be arrested because he preferred spending the night in prison rather than with his family, but was rebuffed because he had not committed a crime. He immediately went to a shop next door and threatened the owner with a boxcutter as he grabbed a few sweets and a packet of gum. He was then arrested for robbery.
