And humane in her mind was to place them in a 55-gallon drum, douse them with gas, and set them on fire.
Jake, a 6-month-old pit bull, suffered severe burns all over his body. He still shakes with fear from the incident, but is expected to recover.
Boomer, a 5-year-old pit, suffered burns to his body and ears, but is also expected to live. Detectives found cuts on his head, however, and believe Brotherton beat him. They also think she left him chained in the yard for most of his life.
Brotherton has been charged with two counts of felony cruelty and faces up to 6 years.
