A UK student charged with torturing two cats plead not guilty in Fayette District Court on Tuesday.

Police say they arrested Li Xu at his home on Woodland Avenue where he made a disturbing statement.

Court records show he said that he was beating the cats in his kitchen because he was angry they urinated on the floor.

Police say when the broom handle broke he stabbed them with the broken handle until they died.

Xu is due back in court on December 13th.
