Dog torturer sentenced to 28 years in prison and with seven counts involving animal. The 25-year-old Reno man was handcuffed and wearing a bulletproof vest through the hearing. It was for his own protection, in a case that has sparked a lot of emotion and outrage.
He was arrested in July 2014 after a maid at a Super 8 Motel found a dog’s head in the bathtub. The room was covered with blood and dog limbs, and police found severed skin and heads.
The police finally arrested him, and was accused of seven felony counts of willful torture of an animal. And once count of possession of a controlled substance. A close family friend testified that he felt rage, and killing dogs made him feel high.
