Two deputies indicted for alleged pet executions
A grand jury in St. Bernard Parish Wednesday indicted former St. Bernard Parish Sheriffs Deputy Mike Minton and Deputy Chip England for aggravated cruelty to animals.
The felony charges carry up to 10 years in prison and are the most serious charges the grand jury could have brought against the men, said Kris Wartelle, spokesperson for Louisiana Attorney General Charles Foti Jr.
The deputies are accused of shooting multiple animals in the streets of St. Bernard Parish in the days following Hurricane Katrina.
In a separate but connected case, evidence handed to Fotis office could lead to additional indictments against St. Bernard deputies accused of slaughtering dozens of pets left behind after the storm.
Mark Steinway, co-founder of Pasados Safe Haven in Sultan, Wash., said he found a witness who can place deputies at Beauregard Middle School at the time of the alleged shootings.
Dallas Morning News photojournalist David Leeson Jr. was in St. Bernard Parish in the days after the hurricane. He said he videotaped deputies shooting up to nine dogs and allegedly has Minton admitting on tape they he had executed numerous others.
