They’re back!

Jenelle Evans and David Eason returned to Columbus County Court on Tuesday, June 25 for yet another custody hearing.

As Radar broke, David shot and killed family dog Nugget after the pooch nipped at their 2-year-old daughter Ensley.

The shooting not only resulted in Jenelle’s firing from Teen Mom 2, but also in CPS removing all of their children from their care.

The couple has been in and out of court since May in an effort to regain custody back of the kids.
