Jeffrey Nally - Jailed After Kidnapping Ex-Girlfriend, Forcing Her To Watch While He Murdered 29 Dogs

New Cumberland, W.V. (The Weekly Vice) - Jeffrey Nally Jr., a 19-year-old West Virginia man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly kidnapped and held a woman captive, while forcing her to watch as he tortured and killed 29 dogs. He then reportedly forced her to clean up the mess afterwards.

According to police, a SWAT team was dispatched after a woman called to report that Nally had taken her daughter against her will and was threatening to kill anyone who tried to arrest him.

The victim, identified as a 19-year-old woman, moved in with Nally in December. The relationship went downhill quickly, however, when Nally allegedly became physically and sexually abusive.

He reportedly began rationing her food, forcing her to go days without eating.

At some point in January, Nally began murdering dogs while holding the woman captive. Investigators say Nally killed 29 dogs in all, using a different method and tool with each dog.

"Mutilated, skinned, anything you can imagine," said Hancock County Chief Deputy Sheriff, Todd Murray. "He used everything from a crossbow to a drill, saws to hammers. There were several means he used to mutilate and kill the dogs.

"One dog had been shot several times. One dog had blunt force trauma to the head. One dog, we think had its neck snapped," said Murray. "After the dogs were killed, he would make her clean up."

Nally reportedly found the dogs using classified ads, often finding people who were willing to drop the animals off at his house thinking they would be going to a good home.

The situation came to light when the victim managed to contact her mother and alert her to Nally's behavior.

Three dogs were found alive inside the home, however the woman stated that Nally intended to kill them. She also told investigators that it was Nally's plan to then murder her and then himself.

Nally was booked into the Northern Regional Jail on 29 counts of animal cruelty, one count of domestic battery and one count of kidnapping. Bail in his case has been set at $450,000.
