RENO (AP) — A status hearing has been postponed for a 24-year-old man accused of killing and dismembering several dogs, leaving a gruesome scene in a Nevada motel room.

Jason Brown was scheduled to appear Wednesday in Reno Justice Court on six felony counts of torturing or maiming and killing an animal.

A half-dozen animal rights protesters demonstrated outside the courthouse before the hearing was continued. It has yet to be rescheduled.

Brown was arrested July 9 after a maid told authorities she found a decapitated dog in a south Reno motel room he was renting. Detectives found four dog heads in a small refrigerator in the room.

Brown's lawyer, John Oakes, told the Reno Gazette-Journal last month that Brown has mental health issues and might need a psychiatric evaluation before he goes to trial.
