A Richmond, B.C., man has been charged with nine counts of animal cruelty in the deaths of his family pets.

In October, Kendall Goheen allegedly stabbed and killed the pets that he co-owned with his ex-wife.

The family's 70-pound boxer and two cats suffered multiple stab wounds and other trauma, before being placed in a freezer in Goheen's home.

The SPCA was called to the house but when officers arrived, Goheen refused to speak to them. Goheen allegedly left the animals' bodies in a plastic container outside his house.  

Officials with the BC SPCA called it one of the most disturbing cases they have encountered in recent memory.

Goheen's charges fall under both the B.C. Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act and the Criminal Code of Canada.

He's now believed to be in Saskatchewan and a warrant has been issued for his arrest
