The wife and stepdaughter of a man who drowned and dismembered his pet dog, then blamed black magic for his crimes, were in hospital last night after their home was destroyed in a fire.
Police said Margaret Carroll and Katrina Livingstone had been arrested for arson with intent to endanger life.I totally missed the first story!
Last week Mrs Carroll's husband, Paul, pleaded guilty to causing unnecessary suffering to a protected animal.
Magistrates heard how he drowned and dismembered a Bedlington terrier then claimed supernatural spirits from a Ouija board session on Christmas Eve had killed it.
The 51-year-old, who has learning difficulties, is due to be sentenced later this month.Sounds like they run in the family, frankly:
Despite that, neighbours claimed that the family had continued trying to commune with the spirit world.By, presumably, getting much, much closer to it? Section the survivors!
