Ronald Fraser Golden, 48, of 106 Bullington Road, was arrested today and charged with 22 counts of first-degree cruelty to a cat, Police Chief Floyd Johnson said. Each count of the Class C felony carries a sentence of one to 10 years, he said. Golden was transferred to the Limestone County Jail, where he is being held on $22,000 bond. Police received a report on Sept. 24 about the bodies of dead kittens found in the area of Bullington Road. During the investigation, police received an anonymous tip that Golden was killing the kittens, Johnson said. Lt. Chris Slaton and Sgt. Johnny Campbell interviewed Golden on Sept. 30. "Golden admitted to buying kittens off Craigslist, naming them and then killing them," Johnson said. "Golden told investigators he had a cat room where he would throw the kittens against the floor to break their necks, stomp on them or 'wring their necks.'" Investigators obtained consent from Golden to search his property and found five dead kittens in a brushy area at the back of his property, Slaton said. Two kittens named Melvin and Mia and two dogs were found alive at the home. Slaton said Golden cared for the dogs. "Investigators searched the inside of the home and found blood spatter on the walls and floor," Johnson said. Slaton said Golden told investigators he was "angry at the world." Golden said he had been killing the kittens since July. Golden was held for evaluation by a state mental health officer and Probate Court and was arrested upon his release.
