Man who tortured, killed dogs moved to state prison

Updated: Monday, October 21 2013, 04:58 PM EDT



A Hancock County man charged in 2011 with the torture, mutilation and death of 29 animals, mostly puppies, has been transported to a West Virginia state prison to serve the remainder of his sentence.

Jeffrey Nally Jr., 22, had been held in the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville since he was sentenced in April 2012.

Officials said Nally’s transport to a state prison took so long because a bed for him just recently became available.

In March 2011, a SWAT team converged on an Orchard Lane home where police said Nally had been holding a woman captive for months. Investigators said Nally forced the woman to watch as he mutilated, tortured and killed the animals.

Nally pleaded guilty to nine counts of animal cruelty, each of which carries a sentence of one to five years in prison.
