A 35-year-old Worth man has been charged with injuring his mother and killing his mother’s dog, according to the Cook County Sheriff Office.

Christopher Krentkowski was charged with two counts of aggravated domestic battery and one count of aggravated animal cruelty.

He received a $125,000 bond during his appearance at the Bridgeview Courthouse Monday.

Authorities say that at about8:30 p.m. on May 31, Krentkowski dragged his mother’s 15-year-old dog out of a bedroom in the 11700 block of South Ridgeland Avenue in unincorporated Worth and began to kick it.

When his 53-year-old mother told Krentkowski to stop, he tried to strangle her and struck her head with a bookcase, injuring her, according to the Sheriff’s Police investigation.

Krentkowski then continued to physically assault the dog, causing its death, according to the investigation.

Krentkowski was arrested on Sunday.

His next court date is scheduled for June 26 at the Bridgeview Courthouse.

      I don't think that he's mentally ill – – – I think he's an a*hole that – if I had my way – I would put to sleep – but painfully…Not worth keeping alive – My opinion.
      Also – – I wouldn't think that this was his first act of violence…Mom probably ignored other signs of this idiot's BAD behavior…
