Veteran and Soldier Accused of Tying Therapy Dog to Tree, Shooting It 5 Times

CUMBERLAND COUNTY, N.C – An Army veteran and a soldier are accused of tying up a therapy dog and killing it execution style.

Marinna Rollins, 23, and Jarren Heng, 25, are accused of shooting Rollins’ dog, Cam, multiple times with a rifle, The Fayetteville Observer reports. Authorities say they laughed as they filmed the incident.

“They can be heard on the tape laughing and giggling as the dog was being killed,” Cumberland County District Attorney Clark Reaves said at the couple’s first court appearance on Tuesday. “It was a therapy dog.”

They have each been charged with cruelty to animals and conspiracy, the Observer reports.

Heng, a soldier at Fort Bragg, was arrested Monday evening and Rollins, an Army veteran, was arrested Tuesday afternoon. Bail for Heng was originally set at $5,000 and at $10,000 for Rollins, according to the Observer. Their bails were increased to $25,000 each.

The Pit Bull Press:

“We are very sorry for posting this, as there is nothing positive about this at all. Two absolutely pure evil humans took the life of a dog so sweet, it became a therapy dog. This story hurts. Hopefully, these monsters rot in jail!”
