Windsor Locks police have charged a 20-year-old Windsor Locks man with seven counts of animal cruelty after investigating the abuse and suspicious deaths of seven pet cats.

All seven cats were domesticated house pets belonging to his fiancee's family, according to police.

In June, police and the Animal Control officer started investigating the animal abuse case and the suspicious circumstances, according to police.

The Windsor Locks Police Department secured an arrest warrant yesterday, after an extensive six-month investigation, for Timothy Olschafskie, charging him with seven counts of cruelty to animals.

Olschafskie is being held on a $150,000 bond and will be arraigned today in Enfield.
