Public Appeals for Maximum Sentencing of Premeditated Dog Killers

Public Appeals for Maximum Sentencing of Premeditated Dog Killers
Target: Matt Kelley, Assistant District Attorney, Cape and Islands District Attorney's

On May 31, 2006, two young pit bulls were found dead on a small path near the town's firing range. They had been shot 37 times.

With two high-powered rifles in the back of their car, two men drove their victims to a desolate dirt road at the edge of a wooded area of Cape Cod. Then, police said, Todd A. Soderberg and Keith B. Kynock let their victims go, watching them flee for safety, 40 feet, then 50 feet down the road, before the two lowered their rifles and opened fire. After allegedly firing 37 rounds, their victims lay dead, their bodies shattered from the rifle blasts.

''This was an execution,'' Barnstable police Sgt. Sean Sweeney said. ''This was not a humane act in any way.''

We are not only outraged at this cowardly act of premeditated brutal and cold blooded murder, but that they pleaded NOT guilty! Aside from the weapons charges, the items found in one vehicle denotes these men had other intentions besides the premeditated murder of the two Pit Bulls. We, the People, respectfully ask that each man be convicted on two counts of felony and serve the maximum allowed by the laws of MA.
