Man Accused Of Dismembering Dogs Keeping Heads In Fridge Of Motel Room

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A 24-year-old man is accused of killing and dismembering several dogs and keeping their heads in small refrigerator in a Nevada motel room.

Jason Brown is scheduled to appear at a status hearing Wednesday in Washoe District Court on animal torture and drug charges that could send him to prison for more than 20 years.

Authorities say he was arrested July 9 after a maid called police when she found a decapitated dog in the bathtub of a Reno motel room Brown was renting.

Police say they found four dog heads inside a small refrigerator, and several bloody knives and scissors.

Brown’s lawyer, John Oakes, tells the Reno Gazette-Journal the former Reno High School student has “mental health issues” and might need a psychiatric evaluation before he goes to trial.
