Timo Bodtcher charged with animal cruelty

Charissa and Timo Bodtcher plead not guilty yesterday to animal cruelty.  Burbank police say the two stabbed their aunt’s cocker spaniel mix with a 12-inch hunting knife.  District Attorney Michael Stewart accused Timo Bodtcher of holding down Prince while Charissa Bodtcher stabbed him.  Stewart said the stabbing was so brutal that Prince’s intestines were hanging out.  The two remain jailed in lieu of a $20,000 bond each until their February 16 court date.  The siblings’ mother, Maria Theresa Bodtcher, plead not guilty to accessory charges and was released on her own recognizance.
