Two people in southwest Iowa face criminal charges after they apparently shot four dogs execution-style.

The Fremont County Sheriff’s Office say on May 12th, deputies responded to a call in a rural area of the county on a report that several dogs were chasing livestock and had been shot.

An investigation revealed the dogs weren`t chasing livestock and deputies determined the dogs had been killed execution-style with single gunshot wounds.

Sixty-five-year-old Orrie Covert, Jr. and 30-year-old Amber Sharp were arrested Tuesday after a search warrant found numerous wild game animals at the home.

Covert is being held at the Fremont County Jail, while Sharp is at the Montgomery County Jail.

They are each charged with four counts of animal abuse and charges are still pending based on the results of the search warrant.
