The casting news comes nearly three weeks after MTV confirmed that it had cut ties with longtime cast member Evans after her husband, David Eason, allegedly shot and killed her beloved dog for biting their 2-year-old daughter Ensley in the face.

“MTV ended its relationship with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not filmed any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since,” an MTV spokesperson said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE Tuesday. “Additionally, we have stopped filming with Jenelle Eason as of April 6, 2019 and have no plans to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

The 27-year-old mother of three issued a statement through her management team after her dismissal, saying she is choosing to move on with her family.

“Jenelle is focusing on her family and moving forward,” Evans’ management and representative team tell PEOPLE in a statement. “She is very grateful and appreciative of the opportunity MTV have given her and her family for the last 10 years. It is sad to part ways in this matter but this isn’t the end of Jenelle Evans or her family.”

Evans starred on the MTV series since it premiered in 2011. She reportedly lost custody of her children after the dog’s death.
