A 35-year-old man in unincorporated Worth was charged with two counts of aggravated domestic battery and one count of aggravated animal cruelty after a domestic attack on Sunday.

The attack began around 8 p.m. Saturday, when Christopher Krentkowski dragged his mother’s 15-year-old dog out of her bedroom in the 11700 block of South Ridgeland in unincorporated Worth, Cook County Sheriff’s Police said in a news advisory.

Sheriff’s Police said Krentkowski began kicking the dog. When his 53-year-old mother told him to stop, he tried to strangle her and struck his mother’s head against a bookcase, according to the police investigation.

Krentkowski allegedly continued assaulting the dog, until the dog died.

The 35-year-old man was arrested Sunday.

Bail was set at $125,000 during a court appearance Monday in Bridgeview. He is currently being held in Cook County Jail.

Krentkowski’s is due back in court on June 26.

let's not spend too much taxpayer money on mental examinations, he is mean, and nuts. Nuts in the sense he is a timebomb. Let him out when he's 80, and not a day sooner.

How much does a bullet cost? Whatever it is I dont want to spend more than that. No repeat offender. No psych. evals. Just 1 bullet. Of course we need a gun. Most people I know have a few of those so we are good.
