Carbondale couple plead guilty in poaching case

GLENWOOD SPRINGS - A Carbondale couple who pleaded guilty in a poaching case had posted an online photo of the buck they were accused of illegally killing in 2011.

The Aspen Times reports Shay and Krysta Trulove pleaded guilty to different charges last month after they were accused of shooting two deer, including the buck, on one license.

Krysta Trulove was convicted of charges including violating a law prohibiting illegal hunting of trophy-sized game animals. Court records show she was ordered to pay nearly $10,500 and to forfeit her firearm. Shay Trulove pleaded guilty to illegal possession of wildlife and hunting without a license. He must pay more than $1,900 and forfeit his firearm and meat from the poached buck.

A state wildlife hearing officer will determine if they face other penalties.
