LOS ANGELES (AP) — A TV and video game actor is charged with killing his ex-girlfriend's pet rabbit, sending her grisly photos of its carcass, and threatening to do the same thing to her.
Los Angeles County prosecutors charged Dimitri Diatchenko of North Hollywood, on Tuesday with cruelty to an animal and making criminal threats. He's free on bail.
His manager, Barry Bookin, declined comment.
Prosecutors say Diatchenko killed, skinned, cooked and partially ate the rabbit Dec. 7 after his former lover said they should no longer be roommates.
Authorities say he sent her photos of what he did, and when she returned home, told the woman he'd do the same thing to her.
Diatchenko has voiced many video games and had small roles on TV in shows like 'Sons of Anarchy' and an 'Indiana Jones' movie.
