Demand Stiff Sentence for West Virginia Puppy Torturer

Jeffrey Nally, Jr. was arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic battery, felony kidnapping and twenty-nine counts of felony animal cruelty. He held his former girlfriend hostage, physically and sexually abusing her in Hancock County, West Virginia.

But these acts didn't give Nally enough satisfaction. He proceeded to obtain dogs, mostly puppies, from free ads and torture them in front of the captive woman. Using bare hands, hammers, drills, guns and other weapons, Nally mutilated and then killed twenty-nine puppies. He then forced his prisoner to clean up the mess.

Three puppies were found alive and rescued from the house after police arrested Nally. They were scheduled for the same fate as the others.

Nally has previously been convicted of domestic battery. Violations of convictions from gun charges resulted in Nally being placed under house confinement.

Chief Deputy Todd Murray has seen his fair share of gruesome situations over the years, but never something as horrendous as this. He believes that it will be only a matter of time before Nally moves from animals to killing people.

Join the growing community of people asking the First District Court and Prosecuting Attorney James Davis for stiff sentencing by signing this petition.
