WEBER COUNTY, Utah – A Weber County man was arrested after police say he killed his two dogs in a rage.
According to a probable cause statement released in Utah’s Second District Court of Weber County, Carey Dee Hill, 60, was charged with two counts of aggravated cruelty to an animal, both Class A Misdemeanors.
Weber County Sheriff’s officials said, on Feb. 17, officers responded to a report of a psychiatric problem in southeast Weber County.
When officers arrived, they found Hill, who was “lying on his bed covered in blood.”
Hill had apparently killed his two dogs “in a rage” and officers found a machete in the home.
Deputies said evidence found at the scene suggested one or both of the dogs struggled to get away during the incident.
Hill was booked into Weber County Jail.
