Three more arrest have been made in the burning death of Justice the puppy.
In April the stray pit bull was doused with lighter fluid and set on fire. He was nicknamed Justice by an animal rescue organization but died several days later from infection.
According to the Dallas County District Attorney's Office, 20-year-old Adrian Ayers and 24-year-old Darius Carey turned themselves in for the crime this week.
Ayers was already in custody for an unrelated crime.
Also, 24-year-old Richard Valentine was arrested Wednesday night on animal cruelty charges.
Another suspect, 18-year-old Darius Ewing, was arrested in April and also faces animal cruelty charges.
In an arrest warrant affidavit police said Ewing was the one who threw the lighter fluid on the puppy and Valentine, identified as "Little R," flicked the lit cigarette on him.
Ayers' bond was set at $200,000. No information about Valentine or Carey's bond amounts was immediately available.
Ewing's bond was reduced by half to $50,000, but he has yet to post that amount. If he does a judge ordered him to wear an electronic anklet and pass drug tests while awaiting his trial set for November.
