Man Arrested For Poaching Deer

A Rowan County man could spend the next 24 years behind bars if he's found guilty of illegally killing 48 deer.

The Morehead News says Kevin Watkins also faces numerous drug charges after authorities went to his home and allegedly found marijuana plants and pills.

It all began with an anonymous tip.

Kentucky Fish and Wildlife members searched Watkins' home and found 94 antlers.

Watkins is set to be arraigned on March 11th.
