Kentucky: GUILTY! Zachary Gross, 31, beat and tortured his ex-girlfriend for hours, scalping her and then ordering his pit bull to attack her. He then dumped her on the side of the road and drove off

KENTUCKY -- A man in Kentucky has been found guilty of cutting off his girlfriend's scalp and siccing his pit bull on her.

Prosecutors say the gruesome attack was motivated by obsessive jealousy.


Police say 31-year-old Zachary Gross spent an hour beating and torturing his (then) girlfriend, 26-year-old Marilyn Stanley.

They say Gross used a knife to remove most of the woman's scalp after punching her repeatedly in the face "until she was unrecognizable.”

He then ordered his pit bull to attack her, ripping her ears apart.


After removing the woman's scalp, prosecutors said Gross told her: “You're bald now. Who's going to want you, now?”

Afterwards, the sheriff's ofice says he praised his dog for what it had done to her and then dragged her to a mirror and made her look at herself.


The Sheriff's Office said Gross then put the woman's ripped-off scalp in a plastic bag and dropped her off kicked her out of the car several houses away from her mother's house.

The attack happened September 2015 after investigators say Gross saw a photo on Facebook of his girlfriend in a park with her son and another man.

In December 2015, Gross called a local radio show to defend himself. He blamed Stanley for escalating the fight and said the dog was defending him, reports the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Doctors discovered that 80 percent of the woman's scalp had been removed, according to Daily Mail.

Boone County Circuit Court found Gross guilty of first-degree assault. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

Good Lord. Just assault? It should've been attempted murder!

  1. This is one sick POS that should never walk the earth again. People who have been scalped by pit bulls have died from it. This was attempted murder. He and his ugly dog need to be put down.
