Police: Former Fairfield town official charged with animal cruelty for second time in 4 years

A former Fairfield town official is facing animal cruelty charges for the second time in four years, according to police.
Former Representative Town Meeting member and legislative candidate Raymond Neuberger was charged Tuesday in the death of a cat back in August.
Police say the cat died from blunt force trauma but was also apparently doused in bleach.
Neuberger was also charged with domestic violence.
In 2018, he was charged with abusing two dogs belonging to him and his fiancée.
Hearst Media reports Neuberger served about a month in jail as part of a deal that would end with the charges being wiped from his record.
