STILLWATER, Minn. (AP) — A man is accused of going to his former girlfriend’s home in Stillwater, killing her pet snake and writing “I loved you” with its blood.

Twenty-one-year-old Jonathan Utecht was charged Thursday with felony counts of burglary and terroristic threats.

According to the complaint, Utecht’s ex-girlfriend approached two officers and asked for their help early Wednesday. She said she believed her ex-boyfriend had broken into her apartment.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports when police arrived at the ex-girlfriend’s home, Utecht was standing outside with blood on his hands.

Police found the woman’s snake on the kitchen floor, with a knife sticking in it and the words “I loved you” on the floor next to the snake.

Utecht is in the Washington County Jail. He’s scheduled in court July 28.
