Muskogee, Oklahoma–Krystal Lewis used to have a Jack Russell terrier puppy. The puppy, named Joplin, was just seven-weeks old. The puppy was a gift to Krystal from a friend. When she and the friend had a “falling out,” Krystal decided to have Joplin killed and his pelt made into a snazzy new belt. She enlisted the help of a friend, Austin Mullins. Austin, 26, is accused shooting Joplin, at least 10 times, with a .22. And Krystal, 24, is accused of skinning the dog afterward.
