A 14-year-old has pleaded guilty to burglary and animal cruelty after killing a kitten in a 500-degree oven. The New York City Law Department says the girl will spend 18 months in juvenile jail for the May 6 death of the kitten, named Tiger Lily.

Authorities say she and a friend ransacked a Bronx apartment before putting the animal in the oven, where it cried and scratched before dying.

Seventeen-year-old Cheyenne Cherry pleaded guilty last month to animal cruelty and attempted burglary. She is expected to get a year in jail when she's sentenced on Sept. 2.
