A Long Island man and his wife brought three lovable puppies into their Mineola home, where the husband viciously beat the pooches while his spouse did nothing — leaving two dead and another fighting for her life, according to prosecutors.

Jessica Kuncman, 30, and Ellie Knoller, 29, were hit with charges stemming from the torture of their three dogs, one after the other, each beaten within days of being brought back to their Mineola home.

The couple — who has been married less than a year — pleaded not guilty to the heinous crimes, which prosecutors describe as “serial” animal abuse.

“In my 28 years as a prosecutor, I have never seen a case where someone committed this kind of serial violence against different puppies,” said Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas.

Prosecutors said the pair adopted the first pup, a male shepherd mix named Tucker, on Feb. 8 from North Shore Animal League — but nine days later the new pet was dead from a kidney rupture as a result of Knoller’s “blunt force trauma to the dog.” Tucker suffered from extensive internal bleeding and died.

The very next day, the couple purchased a Goldendoodle named Cooper from a Pennsylvania breeder was dealt a similar fate.

Three days after his adoption, Cooper bled to death from internal injuries, which were the result of being pummeled by Knoller, according to prosecutors. He suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest from the disturbing abuse.

On Feb. 20, Knoller allegedly brought the puppy into Garden City Veterinary Care in cardiac and respiratory arrest.

By the time a veterinarian examined Cooper he had already died.

Knoller then returned to the same breeder days after Cooper’s death and complained he was sold a sick animal. He was given another Goldendoodle named Bella from the same litter.

The couple’s lone surviving dog was then allegedly choked, beaten and suffered several broken bones. The shaggy pooch was left with injuries that total more than $18,000 in medical bills — including broken ribs, a forearm fractured in two places and a pulmonary contusion, according to the Nassau County SPCA.

“I’ve never ever seen a case of serial animal abuse like this. Basically serial murder of an animal,” said Gary Rogers, the SPCA’s president, outside the court. “It’s just wrong.”

Both newlyweds were charged Wednesday with over-driving, torturing and injuring animals. Knoller also faces a felony charge of aggravated cruelty to animals.

Knoller and Kuncman face a max of two years and one year, respectively, if convicted on the top count.


“I don’t know why this happened and unfortunately the dogs can’t tell us,” Singas said. “Maybe there are anger issues. Maybe it’s some kind of sick sport.”

The pair were released without bail but had their passports taken away. They drove off in a Range Rover without commenting.

Why the fuck would they be released without bail. You know if they did this with, say, foster children, it would be a different. I'm in favor of eliminating these two from the gene pool and, certainly, before human children come into their care. I definitely do not believe this was the result of "anger issues".

JFC goldendoodles too, one of the most inoffensive dogs ever. Anyone up for a road trip? They're out on bail, I'll bring the flamethrowers.
I have a labradoodle.
I can't even imagine needing to raise my voice to a doodle let alone kicking and stomping one to death.

Search all of their electronic devices. Ten bucks says they were videoing this abuse for fun and/or to sell on the dark web.
