STEPHENVILLE — After pleading guilty to the grotesque killing of his girlfriend’s cat, Kevin Scott LeCointre will still have to wait to find out his fate on the large number of charges before him.
Crown attorney KariAnn Pike told Stephenville Provincial Court how LeCointre trashed his girlfriend’s house and pinned her cat to the wall with a knife on May 28.
Pike said an autopsy revealed the cat died from blunt force trauma prior to it being pinned to the wall.
The 35-year-old man has been in custody since he turning himself in shortly after the Cape St. George incident.
LeCointre is facing 27 charges in all including previous incidents in Brampton and Kitchener in Ontario.
He is charged with breaching conditions of recognizances, driving while disqualified without a valid registration or insurance, dangerous driving and providing a false name to police and various other offences.
Pike said when police first arrived on the scene they found a smashed laptop computer, a television knocked over with glass everywhere, a broken mirror and other broken furniture and glass ornaments.
A neighbour had witnessed LeCointre’s car there at the time of the incident and took note of it leaving at 5:45 a.m.
He recognized the noisy muffler on the car and had looked out to see that it was LeCointre’s vehicle.
Judge Jacqueline Jenkins told LeCointre, following a meeting with counsel, there were a number of incomplete orders among the Ontario files.
Pike apologized for not having all the proper documentation from Ontario and said hopefully they will get through it next week.
Most of the Ontario offences relate to impaired driving; however, others include criminal harassment, breaking and entering, resisting or obstructing a peace officer to failing to comply with probation orders.
The continuation of his pre-sentence report is now set for 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 4.
