Police said the cats belonged to a Windsor Locks family.

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.

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