Mom, Daughter Stab and Kill the Family Cat

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Kelly Palermo, 50, of Chicago, and her daughter, Samantha Palermo, 21, of Elmhurst, each face one count of aggravated animal cruelty, a class 4 felony. Prosecutors allege that the daughter stabbed the family cat while the mother held the pet down.

The cat was killed at about 8:50 p.m. Wednesday while at the daughter`s home, officials said. Mother Kelly Palermo allegedly became angry with the family cat and picked it up. While she held it, daughter Samantha Palermo stabbed the cat several times, prosecutors said.

Kelly Palermo`s 14-year-old son got the cat away from his mother and called 911, officials said.

Kelly Palermo allegedly took the cat back from her son and held the cat down while Samantha again stabbed it several times eventually killing it, prosecutors said."



I hope the authorities throw the book at these criminals guilty of this horrendous act of animal cruelty and child cruelty

I feel anger and revulsion at the heartless and sadistic women who killed the family cat in such a horrific fashion, and I feel sympathy and concern for the poor child who attempted to save the cat.

These monsters are free on bond, as a condition of bond; both women were ordered not to possess any animals.

Children and Family Services needs to place the 14-year old boy in a foster family immediately, his mother has demonstrated that she`s incapable of raising children.

In March of 2015 Samantha Palmero was charged with domestic violence and was alleged to have bitten and beaten her mother. It`s only a matter of time before these psychos bite, beat or stab the young boy. I repeat, get that kid away from those low-life losers now!
