KHD continues enforcement against Animal abuse/neglect
Tuesday, February 6, 2018
A recent domestic disturbance has resulted in charges being filed for animal abuse as well after investigators make a gruesome discovery at the home, located near the 300 block of Seely St.
What started out as a call about a structure fire on Seely Street has grown into something way beyond our expectations, said Officer Tena Petix with the Kennett Humane Department.
According to the press release issued by the Kennett Police Department, a few weeks ago, at approximately 7:24 a.m., officers were called to the scene of the fire, once it was determined the residence had been set on fire during a domestic incident.
When police arrived, they learned the house had been set on fire by Brigit Moseley, whos boyfriend was inside the home at the time, Petix said. While she was being arrested, the boyfriend was transported to the hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation.
Petix explained although none of that has anything to do with the KHD, she got involved once investigators arrived and learned there were two cats which had died as a result of the house being set ablaze.
When we got there, we learned she had put the cats inside or knew they were in the area where she had set the house on fire, said Officer Petix. Its sad that she not only tried to kill her boyfriend but she killed two innocent animals in the process.
According to the Kennett Police Department, Moseley, 43, has been charged with First-degree arson and First-degree Domestic Assault. KPD officers report that Moseleys charges kept racking up, as she assaulted an investigator during an interview and then two additional people.
Moseley has officially been charged with two counts of animal abuse, in additionto the charges from Kennett P.D. She has a $100,000 Cash Only Bond.
It seems like this year has gotten off to a traumatic start, Petix said. We will continue to let our community know that under no circumstances will we tolerate animal abuse, neglect, etc.
