An inmate, believed to be responsible for the death of a rescue agency’s dog who was participating in a prison training program, has been indicted. According to Fox 19 News, inmate Benjamin Holliday is being charged for the August 25 death of Evie, a dog who was participating in a program at the Warren Correctional institution.
The dog’s death
Evie, who was described as “very sweet,” died from blunt force trauma – she was discovered deceased in a cell by handlers. A necrospy performed on the dog revealed she died from blunt force trauma to her abdomen causing liver hemorrhage.
Meg Melampy, the President of Joseph’s Legacy, said:
We got a nasty person if you can even call them a person. And I can’t even believe, you know, I mean she’s an amazing dog… you know, not that it’s ever OK, but Evie? I mean she was so sweet.
The rescue group removed all of their dogs from the prison training program following Evie’s violent death. The man believed to be responsible for Evie’s death has been transferred to the Madison Correctional Institute.
