PINEVILLE — Jurors in southwest Missouri have convicted an Arkansas man of cattle rustling.

The jurors in the 40th Circuit Court for McDonald County found 44-year-old Holder P. Crow of Garfield, Ark., guilty on Friday of 13 felony counts of stealing, livestock theft and animal abuse.

The Joplin Globe reported that the jurors also acquitted Crow of three additional counts of animal abuse.

Crow and two passengers in his pickup truck were arrested in September after a trooper stopped them near Pineville. A driver had reported seeing a cow's leg sticking through the floor of a cattle trailer and dragging along a highway.

The trailer held 11 cows. One cow was dead in the trailer and three others had to be killed because of their injuries.

Sentencing is set for July 14.
