Utecht allegedly killed the snake to threaten his girlfriend.
Jonathan Utecht wanted to get a terrifying message across to his ex-girlfriend. Apparently he couldn't find a pen.

Utecht, 21, broke into his ex's house and killed her pet snake, then used the snake's blood to scrawl threatening messages on the walls of her apartment, according to a complaint from the Washington County Attorney's Office.

Late Tuesday night, Utecht began calling his ex-girlfriend obsessively and broke into her apartment. When police arrived, they found a bizarre scene that's led to his being charged with burglary and terroristic threats.

Later reporting that Utecht had called her 46 times between 11:40 p.m. Tuesday and 1:03 a.m. Wednesday, the woman tracked down police in a parking lot. Through her tears, she told them Utecht was destroying her apartment. She was right, but it was worse than she thought.

Utecht, who was found outside the building with blood on his hands, had broken into the apartment and smashed the glass case that contained the woman's snake. He killed the snake with a knife, and then used its blood to write a series of messages on the walls and floor, according to the complaint:

"Officers found the phrase 'I will kill you' written in black marker in large letters. Officers also saw the words 'fucking cheater.' The phrase 'I loved you' was written on the floor in the kitchen in what appeared to be blood."

After police arrested Utecht, he told them he'd killed his ex-girlfriend's snake because he knew she loved it and he wanted to get back at her because he thought she'd cheated on him. He was also found to have stolen several items from the woman's apartment, including Playstaton 3 games, black markers, a garbage can, and a George Foreman Grill.

Utecht is being held in the Washington County Jail on $40,000 bail.

He was sentenced to 120 days in jail, with credit for 80 days served, plus five years probation. Not enough. He WILL murder a woman, if not his ex girlfriend within ten years. He's already taken "personal items" from her home. Just like a serial killer does to his victims.
