James Xavier Quattlebaum, 25, mercilessly cut the head off a young pooch with a kitchen knife after an argument on Saturday at about 3:14 a.m., cops said. A 7-year-old and an 11-year-old watched as the heartless killer beheaded the puppy.
He had come home high on drugs and “beheaded several puppies” beforehand, his girlfriend, Tarsha Hankinson said, according to KRON4.
“You don’t get over nothing like that. See all that blood and the dog decapitated in front of you? You don’t get over that,” neighbor Mary Ella Byrd told WRDW. “He had no right doing that dog like that. He should be punished.”
Officers found Quattlebaum in the bedroom, covered in blood and animal fur. They searched the home and found the puppy’s body in the trash, according to reports. As he was being arrested, the alleged puppy killer spit in an officer’s face, a local news station reported.
