A Maryland man has been arrested and charged for killing his friend’s dog. A news release from the Howard County Police department identifies 26-year-old Corey Markus Jones, of Mountain Green Circle, as the man who stabbed and tied his friend’s dog to a tree.
The department writes:
Police were called Dec. 30 for a report of blood in the area of the 8900 block of Town and Country Boulevard. Officers located a deceased pit bull tied to a tree with its throat cut. It appeared the dog had struggled to free itself before succumbing to its injuries.
Police quickly located the apartment where the dog had been in the care of friends of the owner. After interviews with witnesses, police identified Jones, who had recently been staying at the apartment, as the suspect in the killing. They found him hiding behind a shower curtain in the bathtub.
Jones is charged with one felony count of intentionally mutilating, torturing and cruelly killing an animal, and two misdemeanor counts of causing unnecessary suffering and pain. He is being held without bond at the Howard County Detention Center.
