On Wednesday a La Crosse, Wis., woman, accused of torturing and killing her ex-boyfriend's dog, was charged with disorderly conduct and mistreatment of an animal, reported Friday's KARE 11 News.

The 32-year-old woman accused of the cruel deed, which took place on Nov. 14, is Selina Boulton.

Boulton allegedly broke into her ex-boyfriend's home after an argument.; inside of the home, she is accused of attacking the man's 13-year-old basset hound, "Jixer," with a choke collar and a frying pan.

According to court records, the elderly dog sustained broken ribs, a collapsed lung and a stab wound, in addition to being strangled with the collar.

According to the police report, Boulton, who is smiling in her booking photo, apparently showed no remorse for Jixer's death.
