A lawyer for the Jefferson Parish Veterinarian accused of shooting and killing her neighbor's dog say the sheriff's office has no evidence against his client, our media partners at the Advocate report. 

The paper reports that Bob Garrity, the attorney for Kelly Folse said detectives are trying to "force a confession out" of his client because the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office needed to make a "big splash."

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office would not comment on the attorney's remarks.

Kelly Folse, is accused of shooting the 15-month old American Bulldog, Bruiser, on December 13th.

The Advocate reports that the dog was rushed to the Abadie Veterinarian Hospital in Harahan, the same office where Folse worked, but the team there was unable to save the animal. 

Folse had been booked on charges of aggravated cruelty to an animal, illegal discharge of a weapon, and two drug offenses. The drug charges arose from two prescription narcotics, diazepam and adderall, found in Folse's home.
