A Phoenix man, who was angry at his 6-month-old puppy for urinating on the floor of his apartment, faces animal cruelty charges after he beat and stabbed the dog to death. Decarlos Jones, 29, also removed the puppy’s head as a way to get even with his girlfriend.
According to Azfamily.com, Jones had returned from work on Tuesday and let the puppy named Bella out of her crate. When the puppy walked out of the cage, she urinated on the floor which angered Jones who then dragged the pooch into the bathroom where he repeatedly slammed her head against the bathtub and then stabbed her with a knife.
Tragically the story gets even more disturbing. Allegedly Jones had been having an argument with his girlfriend, who also owned Bella, and so Jones decapitated the pup and placed the head on the living room table for his girlfriend to see when she returned home. Jones told authorities he ate his dinner with the dog’s face pointed towards him. Jones also planned to cut the puppy’s legs off, but changed his mind. He then wrapped the dog’s body in a plastic bag.
Jones claims to be bipolar, suffer from PTSD and claims he has “self destructive thoughts at times.” He is currently being held on $5,000 bond and is awaiting a mental health evaluation.
