WARNING: extremely graphic content ahead.
Army vet Marinna Rollins and her soldier boyfriend, Jarren Heng, were recently arrested after shooting her PTSD therapy dog, Cam, multiple times with a rifle execution-style and at close range.
According to reports, the couple can be heard “laughing and giggling” as they fired off the fatal shots. They have each been charged with cruelty to animals and conspiracy with both bails set to to $25,000.
Cumberland County District Attorney Clark Reaves said at the couple’s first court appearance on Tuesday:
“They can be heard on the tape laughing and giggling as the dog was being killed. It was a therapy dog.”
Before the incident on April 17, the 23-year-old had posted to Facebook announcing that she had found Cam a new home, saying:
“Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to.”
Heng, 25, had commented under the post with a smiley-face, writing:
“He’s going to have such a great new life.”
Court documents reveal that the pair later took the dog into the woods, took photos (above), and then tied Cam to a tree. It’s said Heng and Rollins took turns filming the incident, as they each took several shots at the animal.
Authorities have retrieved videos and text messages of the couple discussing the killing.
This is so fucking sad and disturbing!!!!
