MIDDLETOWN

Police have arrested an Ohio man who had nine dead cats and kittens in his freezer.

Middletown police arrested 24-year-old Edmund Cunningham on Thursday during a search of his home.

Authorities say they’d received a complaint about Cunningham harming the animals.

A woman who runs an animal-rescue organization says Cunningham adopted the cats from her. Taylor Buttelwerth tells WXIX-TV that Cunningham seemed normal.
