Delay in Ella Stewart Trial

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- There's new information about the trial for the Kennewick woman accused of animal cruelty while running a puppy mill.   

Ella Stewart's trial has been delayed until next year after a continuance was granted by a judge.

Pre-trial motions were slated for tomorrow; they have been pushed back to January 21 because the defense has had trouble finding an expert veterinarian to review the evidence. 

The trial is now set to begin on March 15.
