    A Hernando County jury found 25-year-old Wilana Frazier guilty Thursday of two counts of animal cruelty and one count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor. Her sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 2.

    Prosecutors say Frazier was at a park with her two sons in June 2011 when she hit one kitten with a bat and then encouraged her 8-year-old son to beat another kitten. One kitten was found dead in a trash can. The other survived for two months but eventually had to be euthanized because of its injuries.
