LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A judge has placed two 11-year-olds charged with animal cruelty on house arrest following their first court appearance on Monday afternoon.
The boys, whose identities are not being released, are accused of throwing rocks at a feline that was giving birth at an apartment complex in the 9600 block of West Russell Road on Oct. 9.
Police said a resident was alerted to the sound of breaking glass at a nearby apartment building. Witnesses also said they saw two juveniles throwing rocks against a building.
Police said the rocks were being thrown at a cat giving birth, which ultimately led to the deaths of six kittens.
An investigation by Metro's Enterprise Area Command Problem Solving Unit led to the arrests of the boys.
The two were arrested on Thursday and booked into Clark County Juvenile Hall. They each face seven counts of animal cruelty, Metro said.
In court, attorneys for the two boys did not admit any fault, instead pointing to a psychological exam that showed both to be low-risk.
"No delinquency history - psychological evaluation does say he's a normal child, he's honest, reliable, caring, conscientious," said an attorney for one of the boys.
Judge William Voy presided over the last case of animal abuse involving two teens who drowned a pair of kittens.
"You have an unprompted statement about - 'I didn't do it. I didn't kill any kittens,'" Voy said.
He pointed out that in nine years on the bench, he has never seen something like this.
"All of a sudden I got two back to back, it's really weird. I don't know," he said.
House arrest will include GPS monitoring and will remain in effect until the pair's next court appearance, scheduled for Oct. 30.
"One kid, his face was so angelic looking, I was really shocked that they could do this," said Gina Greisen, who authored the new Cooney's Law, which makes the intentional killing of animals a felony in Nevada.
If convicted, the 11-year-olds face a maximum of 30 days in detention.
On Monday, the judge remarked that the two will likely only receive probation because of their age and the fact that they have no prior incidents on their records.
Several family members attended Monday's hearing, some in tears. One relative waved to a television camera in the court room, and another shouted at a reporter who asked for an interview.
