A Tennessee man is accused of a heinous act of cruelty which claimed the life of a young Yorkie who belonged to his family. According to WKRN News, on Sunday morning, Kimah Meriweather drowned his twin brother’s fiancé’s dog because “Jehovah” told him to.
The strange story
Meriweather has admitted to the crime – the authorities have a text in which Meriweather admits to the killing and provides his bizarre explanation:
This is what Jehovah has anointed me to do, his will, the dog had a demon in it, and I had to clean the house really good so the demon could be removed, so I filled the tub with water and held the dog down and I prayed to Jehovah God, the true God, I washed the dog and the cage, everything yes I did.”
The family tie
Meriweather lived in Nashville with his twin brother, Kimon Meriweather, who had gifted the young Yorkie, Diamond, to his fiancé. Kimon told the news agency that he has since kicked his brother out of their apartment – he expressed confusion over the strange act of cruelty, “Bro, why? What really made you do that, I mean for real. What really told you the dog had a demon in her, what lead up to that? Did your mind even tell you to stop? That this wasn’t right?”
