Lynn told officers that her dogs had hurt another dog in her neighborhood, a mobile home park, court documents said. Lynn claimed that the park's manager told her to have the dogs put down in the next day, police said.

According to WEWS-TV, Lynn told police that she couldn't afford to have the dogs euthanized at a vet's office, so she looked online for a way to do it herself. Lynn, who has diabetes, decided to use her insulin and gave the dogs 30 doses of the drug, police said.
