La Crosse woman faces felony in dog's death
Story By Associated Press

LA CROSSE - A La Crosse woman now faces a felony charge in the death of an aged basset hound owned by her ex-boyfriend.

Selina Boulton was charged in December with two misdemeanors but prosecutors elevated the charges on Friday.

The 32-year-old is now charged with mistreatment of animals, a felony, and disorderly conduct. Her preliminary hearing will be Aug. 15.

Police reports say officers found 13-year-old Jixer dead Nov. 14, its choke collar cinched tightly to its neck and a frying pan nearby.

An autopsy determined Jixer died of asphyxiation/respiratory failure as a result of severe trauma. Court records say the dog had fractured ribs, a collapsed lung and a stab wound.

Boulton had a 0.10 percent blood-alcohol concentration.
