Man Accused Of Dismembering Dogs At Motel

RENO, Nev. (August 13, 2014 Jason Brown, 24, who’s accused of killing and dismembering several dogs and keeping their heads in small refrigerator in a Nevada motel room, remains jailed, facing charges that could send him to prison.

Brown was scheduled to appear Wednesday at a status hearing in Reno Justice 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 to report that 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, told 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.
