Pair arrested with dead cows in trunk
GROSSE TETE - A man and woman were arrested, accused of shooting calves in a field then stealing the dead animals.
Deputies posted the booking photos of the two individuals and a graphic picture of the evidence. Investigators said after shooting the cows with a compound bow, they loaded them into the trunk of a car. The image shows a bloody mess with the lifeless animals stuffed into the trunk.
Rodney James and Janina Minvielle are charged with theft and animal cruelty.
A deputy found James and Minvielle, of Livingston Parish, on the side of I-10. The deputy thought the pair were broken down and stopped to help.
Deputies said more charges could be filed since the pair admitted they have done this before.
