After his roommate had been shot to death in the home they shared in Keene, NH on December 21, Nicholas R. Coll is now accused of bestiality with a dog - and it isn’t the first time, either, reports SentinelSource.com.
The 25-year-old man is currently held at the Cheshire County jail on a $10,000 bail.
Coll owns two dogs that he and others interviewed by the police, say he “doted on.” Police haven’t commented on whether either of his own dogs was the victim of the alleged assault.
Coll was convicted of having had sex with a dog back in 2007. He lived in Hancock, NH at that time, and had just started an informal dog walking business. One of his clients reported him to local police when their dog was returned home showing signs of an assault. When the pooch was seen was their veterinarian, it was concluded that the injuries were “caused by likely sexual trauma.” On July 17, 2007, Coll received a 180-day jail sentence.
Coll’s now deceased roommate, David E. Wheelock, was a registered sex offender.
