Hearing Reset For Boys Accused Of Stoning Kittens To Death

LAS VEGAS (November 13, 2012)--A court hearing was postponed Tuesday for two Las Vegas 11-year-olds who are facing allegations that they threw stones that killed six newborn kittens.

Prosecutor Michael Watson received the boys' psychological evaluations Tuesday and needed time to review the findings.

Watson says Family Court Judge William Voy rescheduled the hearing for Dec. 4.

The boys' names haven't been made public because of their ages.

They were put on house arrest following an earlier court appearance.

Police say neighbors heard breaking glass Oct. 9 at an apartment complex, and witnesses reported seeing the boys throwing stones before running away.

Authorities say the rocks killed six kittens as their mother gave birth.

The boys could be placed in detention for as long as 30 days on seven counts each of animal cruelty.
