Julius Holley Wiki – Julius Holley Biography
Julius Holley, 55, of Detroit, was charged with one count of second-degree burglary, one count of first-degree murder/torture of animals, one count of burglary and one count of stalking. Holley was given a $200,000 bond/cash. He, too, was arraigned on an outstanding 2019 warrant and was posted a $50,000 cash bond for that case.
Holley allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house and took her Yorkshire Terrier mix dog, along with other household items. She then allegedly sent his ex-girlfriend videos of him beating and torturing the dog. Ultimately, the dog was dumped in a bucket next to a house and taken away by Michigan Humane to make sure he couldn’t be abused again.

“Michigan Humane is proud to partner with the Michigan Attorney General’s Department to provide not only cruelty investigation, but also a safe haven for animals in times of crisis,” said Michigan Humane President and CEO Matt Pepper. “I am happy to say that the dog involved in this case, after receiving medical attention from our team, is doing very well and has returned home.”
Holley was wanted after the alleged abuse. The police found him in Ohio and he was extradited to Michigan. In Michigan, a person who tortures or kills a pet with the intent to cause suffering or mental anguish to a person, or to exert control over a person, is guilty of a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
“Those who try to evade law enforcement will be found and held accountable,” Nessel said. “I want to thank Michigan Humane for the programming and support they provide to victims of domestic violence who might otherwise be reluctant to leave a dangerous situation if it means leaving their pets behind.”
