The man charged with the murder of Lisa Marie Naegle has a history of abuse … allegedly leaving a family horse near death..
Jackie Jerome Rogers was arrested in L.A. in 2009 along with his mom, charged with felony animal abuse. A neighbor at the time tells us the white horse was tied up in a barn in the Rogers’ backyard and appeared extremely malnourished … to the point it seemed the animal might die.
The neighbor says Animal Control came and took the horse away.
Jackie Jerome Rogers copped a plea … the felony was dropped and he pled no contest to misdemeanor animal cruelty. Rogers got 3 years probation and did 20 hours of community service.
And in a dark twist … Rogers confessed he buried Naegle’s naked body in the same backyard the horse was abused.
He’s currently being held on a $2 million bond for Naegle’s murder.
