MOSS POINT, Miss. – Authorities say that one of the two Mississippi men wanted in connection with a widely viewed video shows a cat being scalded by hot liquid has surrendered to the police.
Last week, the-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2ibbqlj ) that 43-year-old Larry Rostchild Jr. gave on Wednesday to the police in Moss Point, Mississippi, and is charged with aggravated assault of an animal.
The police say they are still looking for a second man, 24-year-old Laderrick Rostchild, after they issued an arrest warrant for him on the same charge.
Police Cmdr. Stacey Deans told the Sun Herald that the researchers believe that the Rostchilds burnt the cat, and later found dead.
The men could face up to six months in prison.
Police say the 23-year-old Karmen Coleman removed the video from social media after learning they are faced with the cost of rendering criminal assistance. She turned in the last week.
