An Alabama woman and her son were charged with murder after they had allegedly killed a man as a dispute over lost dog escalated, a witness said.

The woman, Shana Yvette Muldrow (56), accompanied by her son Shakeem Mufasa Butler (24) had supposedly beaten Joseph Minniefield (58) to death on Sept. 20, The Washington Post reported.

A judge in Selma had set bond at $1 million each on Sept. 25, Thursday which they will have to pay in order to come out of the jail.

The brutal beating constitutes nothing short of mental disorder. According to the court documents, a witness recalled seeing Butler hitting Minniefield in the face continuously. The witness told police that Minniefield lost Muldrow’s dog which infuriated them.

A police statement revealed that the woman rushed Minniefield to a hospital but refused to know him to the officers.

When ABC News e-mailed an attorney for Muldrow and Minniefield for comments, he was unavailable.
