On December 3, 2014 at approximately 11:00 A.M., Lynn Denning was viciously mauled by both Malaki, now a 4 Year-Old Rottweiler, and Phoenix, now a 5 Year-Old Rottweiler, while she was working as a Home Healthcare Aide. As a result of this mauling, Denning suffered life threatening and life altering injuries. Based on the investigation conducted by the Plainfield Police Department both Jenna Allen (age 30) of 379 Putnam Road in Wauregan and Corey Beakey (Age 30) also of 379 Putnam Road in Wauregan were arrested and charged with Reckless Endangerment 2nd Degree, 2 Counts of Possession of a Nuisance Dog, and 5 Counts of Failure to License Dog.
Since the vicious mauling, the Plainfield Police Department and Plainfield Animal Control Office moved to have Malaki and Phoenix euthanized as they were clearly a serious danger to society. Allen and Beakey did not agree and refused to have the dogs euthanized. A hearing pertaining to this matter was later conducted at the State of Connecticut Department of Agriculture.
On March 18, 2016, the Commissioner of Agriculture rendered a final decision and affirmed the euthanized orders of Malaki and Phoenix based on the substantial evidence. However, according to State Law, Allen had 45 days to appeal this decision to the Superior Court but failed to do so.
On June 10, 2016 at approximately 3:00 P.M., the Plainfield Police Department assisted a State of Connecticut Certified Veterinarian in humanly euthanizing Malaki and Phoenix at the Plainfield Animal Control Facility without incident.
At this time, this investigation is NOT closed as the Plainfield Police Department is seeking additional arrest warrants.
