La Crosse woman charged in dog's death now facing felonies

LA CROSSE, WI (WTAQ) - A 32-year-old La Crosse woman has had the charges filed against her elevated from misdemeanors to felonies in the death of an older dog owned by her ex-boyfriend.

Selina Boulton was first charged last December. She is scheduled to return to court next Friday.

La Crosse police say they found the 13-year-old basset hound dead November 14th, with its choke collar tight around its neck and a frying pan nearby.

An autopsy revealed the dog named Jixer had died of asphyxiation as the result of severe trauma. It had fractured ribs, a collapsed lung and a stab wound.

When checked, Boulton’s blood alcohol content was above the legal limit.
