Ella Stewart competency hearing delayed

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The courts have still not ruled if Ella Stewart is competent to stand trial.

Stewart faces 10 charges, nine of them misdemeanors, for animal cruelty after police seized almost 400 American Eskimo dogs from her Kennewick home.

A status hearing was pushed back a week, to June 17th. Stewart has maintained her innocence.
