New York State Police in Oneonta say it’s believed 52 year old Antonio Fiorino of Worcester gave a woman’s two cats antifreeze.  The cats became very sick on April 9 and had to be euthanized.

He’s charged with two counts of overdriving, torturing and injuring animals.

State Police say Fiorino was arrested on April 18 and released after posting $500 bail.

He’s been ordered to appear in Worcester Town Court next month.
