A Chippewa County man who killed six family pets while kids watched will spend nine months in jail.

And a judge told Raymond Knez, 34, of Boyd to perform community service for animals.


He pleaded no contest to causing mental harm to children.

Authorities said Knez got his gun and started shooting at pets after a night of drinking last January.

Four cats and two dogs were killed and then one of the children was ordered to clean up the mess.

Officials said Knez's girlfriend, Chrystalyn Adcock, 30, was also there. She was charged with causing mental harm to a child.
