WORCESTER, N.Y.--

A Worcester man is arrested after allegedly poisoning cats with antifreeze. 

Antonio Fiorino, 52, is charged with two counts of the Agriculture and Markets Law of Overdriving, Torturing and Injuring Animals.

A NYS trooper was dispatched to an address in Worcester where the complainant believed Fiorino poisoned his cats. The complainant reported that both cats became very sick on April 9, 2019 and had to be euthanized.

An investigation ultimately revealed that the cats were poisoned with antifreeze which ultimately led to their death.

Fiorino was arrested on April 18 and arraigned in Worcester Town Court where he posted $500 cash bail. His return court date is May 7, 2019.
