NORTH CAROLINA — 23-year-old Marinna Rollins, the woman accused of fatally shooting her dog in a viral video, has died in apparent suicide.
According to WCSH, police found Rollins dead in her home after friends couldn’t contact her.
Rollins and her boyfriend, Jarren Heng, 25, were charged in the fatal shooting of a PTSD dog, which was filmed and posted online.
The helpless dog, Cumboui, was shot at least five times at point-blank range—-for apparently no reason.
The Cumberland County Animal Shelter posted on their Facebook page in December: “Please someone show this boy what a real loving forever home is. He is super-friendly, very sweet, calm and loving. He just wants someone to love him and give him a chance.”
According to WYFF, ‘Rollins’ estranged husband adopted the dog in January, shortly after the couple separated. Her husband was sent to South Korea, and he left the dog in Rollins’ care. She changed the dog’s name to Camboui, Cam for short, and had kept him ever since.’
The duo was charged with cruelty to animals.
