Authorities have reported the arrest of three women from New Jersey on charges of aggravated assault, child abuse, and neglect, after allegations surfaced that they subjected a 13-year-old girl to cruel punishment involving the use of an electric shock dog collar, Your Content has learned.

The shocking incident is said to have started when the child was just nine years old, according to the arrest warrants filed by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office.

The arrested individuals have been identified as Kelly Mennig, aged 43; Rachel Mennig, aged 20; and Rebecca Mennig, aged 18. The young victim, who was discovered wearing the shocking device, has since been placed under foster care for her safety and well-being.

In addition to the shocking collar, the child reportedly endured further mistreatment, including food deprivation and inadequate clothing, inflicted upon her by the accused trio.

Visible marks on her neck were observed by the police, serving as evidence of the collar’s usage.

The distressing ordeal took an unexpected turn when the 13-year-old managed to escape to a neighbor’s house, bravely handing over her collar, which was still vibrating at the time.

Furthermore, the women are also alleged to have coerced the girl into shoplifting on their behalf.

The authorities are taking this case seriously and are committed to ensuring justice for the victim.

Investigations are ongoing as they seek to gather all the necessary evidence to support the charges against the accused individuals, according to The New York Post.
