CALGARY — The girlfriend of the Calgary man charged in the torture killings of a cat and dog told police he spoke to her about killing humans, QMI Agency has learned.

The man also mentioned to her that he hears voices and she's seen him speak to people who aren't there, according to testimony given by a Calgary cop in support of an emergency protection order.

"She said that he has not only spoken about harming and hurting animals, and she's seen him harm animals, but that he has spoken about harming humans," Const. Aaron Squirrell testified on March 10, according to a court transcript of the hearing.

"She mentioned that he has also ... spoken to her about murder and killing humans," Squirrell told Justice of the Peace Lily MacKay.

Squirrell also testified Nicolino Camardi, who currently faces two animal cruelty charges, told police that voices have been telling him to kill his girlfriend.
