State police tell The Press of Atlantic City that 20-year-old Anthony Sammarco Jr. and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Alexis Abbato, were charged Monday with hindering an investigation. Sammarco’s 40-year-old father, Anthony Sr. of Barnegat, faces conspiracy charges.

A passing couple found the limping, bleeding dog on Route 9 in New Gretna in Burlington County on March 7. It had suffered a gunshot wound to the face.

The Sammarcos were being held in lieu of bail, while Abbato’s status was unclear. All three have previously denied any involvement in the shooting.
