18-year-old Ohio man pleads guilty in beating death of 3-month-old alpaca taken from farm

An Ohio teen charged in the beating death of an alpaca named Masterpiece has pleaded guilty to five charges, including cruelty to animals.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that 18-year-old Nicholas Reynolds also pleaded guilty Wednesday to breaking and entering, tampering with evidence, vandalism and grand theft. The 3-month-old alpaca was taken from a farm in southwest Ohio in January.

Reynolds, of Madison Township, also pleaded guilty to attempted failure to comply with a police order in a separate case.

Another teen and a 23-year-old woman charged in the alpaca case are awaiting trial.

Alpacas are llama-like animals valued for their soft fleece. Masterpiece had been valued at $8,000.
