Stalker/dog killer arrested
A Kingsport man appeared in a Sullivan County court to answer to charges he harassed and stalked his estranged wife and shot her two beloved poodles, killing one of them. 53-year-old Timothy Blevins left several phone messages for the victim threatening her, and then one phone call had what sounded like a gunshot with Blevins telling the woman her dogs had been shot and were suffering. She called police to go with her to her South Creek Court residence to get the animals. Police say Blevins was at the home when they arrived and told them the dogs were running around the house…that he smelled of alcohol…and became belligerent and uncooperative with officers…Blevins also tried to advance his way toward the victim who was outside in the driveway at the time. Officers arrested Blevins then started a search of the house where they found one dog walking around with an apparent gunshot wound to the neck…that animal has been treated and is expected to recover. A second poodle was found dead…shot in the back lying in a bedroom. Other animals were present…they belonged to Mr. Blevins and were unharmed. Two bullet holes were found in the kitchen wall and two loaded guns on the table. Blevins in charged with several counts relating to the incident. (CC)
