An estimated 200 dogs were discovered at a Stephens County, Oklahoma, residence when police went to the home in mid-February to investigate a murder. Evidence at the home led Stephen’s County Sheriff’s Office deputies to arrest 49-year-old Karen Jean Prichard on suspicion of second-degree murder, and dismal conditions at her Marlow property prompted further investigation resulting in 113 counts of cruelty to animals.
As reported by the Marlow Review, deputies described conditions at the property as "deplorable." The Humane Society of Tulsa, which took in many of the dogs and puppies, stated, "Dogs were living in horrific conditions without basic needs. They have multiple medical issues that need immediate care."
This woman is also accused of murdering 31-year-old Ashley Nicole Anderson, whose body was found in a metal shipping container that was secured with a pad lock. Officers found the woman wrapped in a blue tarp which was secured with a rope, reports Yahoo News.
We need your support to help convince court officials that she deserves the maximum sentence for all of the charges that she is facing. Karen Jean Prichard must be put behind bars for as long as possible, AND be forbidden from owning any pets in the future!
