DALE CITY, Va (WUSA) -- He's got a long rap sheet, including sex offenses, and now neighbors are furious that a judge let Robert McGuire out of jail after he allegedly cut the head off his mother's cat.
McGuire has a long history of trouble with the law: abduction, failing to register as a sex offender, assault, impersonating a police officer -- and now this horrible case of alleged animal cruelty.
The family has moved out of the house and it's now up for sale.
But investigators say it's at 4515 Dale Blvd that Robert McGuire allegedly got in an argument with his mother, grabbed the family cat, and beheaded it.
"Did he hold it down, the cat squirming all around, while he cut its head off? It doesn't make any sense," says neighbor Dave Walter, who says he's had nightmares since he found out. The cat used to play with his cat. "It's name was Mr Winkles."
