March 14th 08, 02:55 PM
MUNCIE -- A man was jailed Thursday on charges he forced his 7-year-old
daughter to kill the family cat by holding a knife in her hand and
making her stab the pet.
Danield J. Collins, 39, told his children during a visit to his home
on Sunday that he wanted them to "learn how to kill" and gave his 11-
year-old son a knife to do it, according to an affidavit filed in the
case.
The boy tried to save the cat by hiding it under a sofa bed and
putting ketchup on a knife when Collins went to the bathroom. But when
the father realized the cat was not dead, he forced his daughter to
hold the knife and then held her hand tightly as he drove the knife
into the animal, Muncie police Detective Jami Brown said.

....Police say Collins finally stabbed and strangled the cat himself, and
had his son throw the carcass in the trash. The children, who live with
their grandparents, say their father was drunk when he came for a visit.
Collins is being held on $40,000 bond on charges of animal cruelty,
battery and child neglect.
