Judge Gillian Abramson told Clifford, “These allegations display a profound sense of sadism. That is of deep concern to this court. And for that reason, I am setting bail in the amount of $10,000 cash only. I will not release her to the Elliot or Catholic Medical Center.” Clifford’s lawyer, Callan Maynard, said, Clifford’s husband was “very concerned for her health and her welfare, and being incarcerated because she is 32 weeks pregnant, your honor.” If Clifford posts bail, she is not allowed to return to Murray’s apartment, reports CBS Boston.

Murray said, “I don’t understand why she would do such a thing. It’s disturbing. It’s emotional. It’s sick. She’s a sick, twisted girl.” While Klimavich added, “Our youngest ferret, Angel, was in the oven, dead.”

Murray told CBS Boston that Angel was “very friendly, she was so cute, she was very energetic, she would run around with the other ferrets.”

Both of the Cliffords should be spayed and neutered. I don’t believe she’s never harmed another animal before. First time she was caught, maybe. Mr C should stop the meth and get a job so they can live in their own place . … and the couple that took them in were fools. No good deed goes unpunished.
