Authorities said Rollins and Heng took the gray-and-white male pit bull to an unknown wooded area, tied the dog to a tree, and then shot him in the head.

A friend of Rollins videotaped the incident and uploaded it to Facebook.

Rollins was found dead in her apartment in May.

At the time, authorities were investigating her death as a possible suicide.
