What led to Marinna Rollins an Army veteran and her soldier boyfriend, James Heng conspiring to shoot dead a service dog while filming the episode?

Marinna Rollins a 23 year old Army veteran has been arrested after allegedly tying a service dog to a tree and fatally shooting him five times at close range. 

The shooting of the PTSD therapy pit bull took place while her soldier boyfriend filmed the macabre episode.

Come Tueday, Rollings was arrested in Fayetteville, North Carolina after footage of the shooting turned up on Facebook, while her boyfriend, James Heng, 25 was arrested on Monday. 

Subsequent to their arrest, Rollings and Heng were charged with animal cruelty and conspiracy reported the Fayetteville Observer.

Court documents describe Rollins teaming up with Heng for the seemingly random killing which took place earlier this month. 

The couple allegedly led the white-and-gray pit bull to a wooded area before tying him to a tree and fatally shooting the dog. The canine — dubbed Camboui, but referred to as ‘Cam’ or ‘Cammy’ — was ultimately shot five times with a rifle as Rollins and Heng, who is still enlisted and stationed at Fort Bragg, took turns filming him.

‘Let me hit him once,’ Heng can be heard saying in the video.

During the clip, both Heng and Rollins are heard laughing and joking before eventually dumping the dog in a shallow grave.

‘That’s his nerves going,’ Rollins says, as Camboui’s body begins to convulse.

She and Heng can also be seen drinking alcohol in several pictures that they took before allegedly killing him.

‘It’s been real Cammy,’ Rollins says while burying him. ‘I love you, you’re my puppy, you’re a good puppy. But…’

It’s unclear if the pair had been putting Cambouiout out of its misery or whether he was suffering from sort of illness at the time of his death — which took place on either April 16 or 17, according to WTVD.

Marinna Rollins suicide: Army veteran kills self after death threats

Camboui was reportedly given to Rollins as an emotional support dog after she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health issues.

At the time, Rollins and her husband had separated in January, 2016, when he acquired Cam then known as Huey after the pup had been put up for adoption.

During this time, Rollins continued to take care of the dog, even going so far as to look for a new home for the service dog earlier in the month. Some though believe that may have been a ruse leading up to the dog’s planned execution.

According to the Observer, Rollins wrote on April 17 that Camboui would be heading to his new owner soon.

‘Sad he has to go, but he will be much happier where he is heading off to,’ Rollins wrote.

‘He’s going to have such a great new life,’ Heng replied, adding a smiley face emoji to his post.

A Facebook page, titled “Justice For Cam,” posted footage of Camboui being killed, which didn’t necessarily go down too well.

Wrote the page moderator on Monday: ‘A lot of people are getting upset that this video is posted here,’ 

‘You do not have to click play and watch it but let me clarify something. Marinna Rollins is trying to claim that the dog was sick and suffering and that she did this out of Mercy. The video has been shared, to prove otherwise, because we don’t want her to get off easy for the crime she committed. This was clearly not mercy.’

An investigation by Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office and Cumberland County Animal Control found that Rollins and Heng both breaking the law when they took Cam’s life. It not only turned up the video, but also several text messages of theirs in which they allegedly discussed the shooting.

‘As graphic as the videos are, they tell Camboui’s story, that he was unable to do,’ the moderators of the “Justice For Cam” page said. ‘Many people thought he was going to a new home, and family. These videos prove otherwise, that he was brought out to a wooded area, shot multiple times, and then beaten and dragged to a shallow grave. Like a piece of trash, not a well taken care of ESA. His body is still out there, somewhere in those NC woods.’

Rollins’ bail was initially set at $10,000 Tuesday, while Heng’s was set at $5,000 after his arrest on Monday night. But they were both raised to $25,000 following requests from prosecutors.

Rollins joined the Army in February of 2014, according to a spokesman with the Army Human Resources Command at Fort Knox. She served as a multimedia illustrator in the Army and spent time in South Korea. Come January of 2017, Rollins medically retired from the Army.

It’s unclear when the couple’s next court date is as Rollins’ husband insists he remains anonymous in the face of recent death threats towards the shooting couple.

    Oh hell no. I would be the one shooting the psycho bitch in the head. I volunteer for a local rescue. I am also the one who cheered when psycho bitch killed herself & that she didn’t breed. Had she not done the right thing & killed herself, she should have been spayed because it is anyone’s guess what she would do an innocent child.

  • proteus

    My guess is that you will be holding the door and saying “welcome to my home”

    I’m not trying to, really. I just don’t want the guy to get off scot free, and the online community to be blamed. The online community is only a distant third, if that. There was a terrible case in Massachusetts too about dog abuse, absolutely horrendous. The abuser was sentenced to 55 years in prison, and had a $500,000 bail.
    I had read about an awful case in Kansas too about a poor child abused and killed. The words ‘possibility of parole’ should never be mentioned in connection with this Kansas monster’s name, ever.

    STOP trying to make this psycho bitch into a victim. She knew exactly what she was doing. She PLANNED the entire thing. If there is a Hell, I hope she fries.

  • Judy Rae Jackson

    These people are psychos. Marinna did the right thing and killed herself this past weekend. Heng should do the same thing.

  • Ida

    To me, it’s not so much who the victim is, but the cruel and vicious intent shown here. A perp is a perp is a perp. People like these two could do the same thing to another person, but where the penalties are much, much higher than for the poor dog, they did it to the dog because they can. There are many more out there like them, unfortunately. Even to children – cowards prey on the weak.

    And if anyone is responsible for this woman’s suicide, it’s the poor excuse for a boyfriend – not the justifiable outrage of the online community. Actions have consequences, and his encouragement and participation are what lead to her suicide. Maybe there’s a wrongful death lawsuit in there somewhere.

    Someone had mentioned sexual assault. Also someone who claimed to know the two said the husband put naked pictures out on the internet of her. Hard to say. I do know from being in the Army that scruples are pretty low. I’ve seen women pass out and get gang raped. Of course the women never pressed it, the guys didn’t think much of it, and the command tried to ignore it. If you are in the military you need to be smart. Too many aren’t.

  • Ida

    For one, it wasn’t ‘her’ dog – the media is saying it is her ’emotional support dog’ and that he might have been sick and that she was putting him down. It was her husband’s dog. Trying to garner sympathy and excuse her bad behavior like they always do, and attributing it to post traumatic stress. Excusing behavior like this is what is the cause of so much violence in the world.
    I believe she got frightened by the sh*tstorm her aberrant behavior stirred up, and she took the coward’s way out – just like a coward would tie a poor helpless dog to a tree, who could not defend himself, and take pleasure in killing the poor thing, and brag about it on social media.
    Now I hope that soulless-looking boyfriend of hers gets a dishonorable discharge and court martial.

  • DiscoHarvey

    She’s kinda hot. 9/10, I’d hit that like a Mexican hits a roofing nail.

  • (D)umb(N)othing(C)unts

    LOL .sounds like they had some fun .

  • Chris

    Retarded Deplorable, what exactly is the other side of the story? You do realize that a video is the other side of the story right?

  • Chris

    It is better significantly better, I lived in Tokyo for 4 years this was the best time of my four year career, there is very little violence in either Korea or Japan that would warrant PTSD from military service. This woman was obviously mentally unstable while in Service. I can only speculate that this is why she was removed from Service.

  • PeterParkour

    What kinda PTSD do you get from being in South Korea? You’d think being stationed there or Japan would be much better than being stationed in the middle east.

  • PeterParkour

    Can you please explain more about it? What is the other side to a story about a women and her boyfriend killing a dog, leaving it for dead, filming it all, going on Facebook to mock it?

  • Ecstatic Deplorable

    More to the story than the parasite media is leading on.

  • Shaun Patrick O’Rourke

    Totally agree!

  • JayGoldenBeach

    They are both violent, dishonourable, dishonest thugs. This sounds much like revenge on her ex-husband as the dog was greatly fond of him and she begged to keep the dog after the ex was transferred to S.Korea.

  • SDH

    Jesus, what a psycho bitch. Then again, dude was with her and dealt with it, so he isn’t too stable either.
