Athens man accused of buying cats to torture and kill them set for arraignment

LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. – A Limestone County man accused of buying cats on Craigslist with the intent to torture and kill them has been set for arraignment on July 29.

Ronald Fraser Golden, 48, of Athens, was indicted on 22 separate charges of cruelty to a cat or dog in May.

He was arrested in October after Athens Police got calls about dead kittens found near his home on Bullington Road.

After he was arrested, police said Golden admitted to buying kittens off Craigslist, naming them, and then killing them.

Investigators say he had a “cat room” where he would torture the animals.

Golden’s trial date has already been set for September 15.
