The dismissed army veteran, who was recovering from post-traumatic stress disorder with her therapy dog, killed her own animal in the cruelest way possible. Together with her boyfriend, 23-year-old Marinna Rollins filmed their brutality and posted the video on Facebook.

Not in good hands

The dismissed servicewoman left the military in January and moved to North Carolina to find peace and recover from her post-traumatic stress disorder originated during the service. Marinna was previously married but divorced her husband who presented her the last gift before departing to Korea. The gray-and-white male pit bull, called Camboui, was designated to help Rollins calm down and get rid of the annoying condition.

However, everything turned upside down when Marinna had to euthanize the dog due to the inability to look after him.

Wild murder

On April 16, 2017, the 23-year-old retired military tied Camboui to the tree in the wooded area near Fayetteville, called her 25-year-old boyfriend, Jarren Heng, an active duty serviceman, and began the mayhem.

They made five shots in the dog’s head one after another, filming the horror and changing their roles: while one was recording, another was shooting. The couple was heard laughing at the terrifying spectacle and drinking beer. The two were later arrested with consecutive bails of $25,000.

The Fayetteville Police Department received another call from the woman’s neighbors a month after the couple’s release. When the police arrived at the military’s home, they detected Marinna’s dead body, reported as a suicide.

PTSD

Post-traumatic stress disorder is, unfortunately, quite a common problem among the American people. Everyday life may become too difficult due to the external problems such as a loss of a close person, serious injury or a threat of harm to oneself. Mental health becomes fragile, and a person can’t objectively treat the things happening around. Alcohol and drug addiction are the most common “ways out of the problem.”

It is important to deal with the condition timely before it influences the everyday life of a person as well as the people around. Depending on the case severity, psychologists offer different kinds of treatment, including medication or different therapies.
