Two southwestern Iowa residents are accused of shooting four dogs to death.
The Fremont County Sheriff's Office says 65-year-old Orrie Covert Jr. and 30-year-old Amber Sharp, both of Tabor, shot the dogs "execution-style.''
Deputies responded to a rural Tabor property around 1:00 a.m. May 12 for a report that dogs that had been chasing livestock had been shot.
But deputies say an investigation showed the dogs had not chased livestock. Each one died of a single gunshot.
Investigators say a search warrant served Tuesday at the property turned up wild game and non-game animals, some of them dead.
Both Covert and Tabor remained jailed Thursday.
