DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) An Iowa woman hanged one of her boyfriend's three dogs in the garage, and told police that she killed the dog because it was old and sick.

The Des Moines Register reports 28-year-old Sheena Cornwell was arrested Saturday evening after her boyfriend came home to discover the dog.

Des Moines Police Officer Greg Catron says Cornwell didn't seem to appear remorseful about killing Lily, who was a pit bull mix.

Cornwell was released a few hours after her arrest but her phone number was disconnected. She faces a charge of animal torture.

Cornwell's boyfriend told police he wanted to get a restraining order against her.
