Trial continued for former veterinarian charged with animal cruelty

A former Williamson County, Illinois veterinarian will have to wait a little longer to have her day in court.

Elisa Kirkpatrick was scheduled to stand trial Monday on multiple charges including aggravated animal cruelty and practicing without a license.

Both sides agreed to continue the trial until November.

The prosecuting attorney says both sides need more time for discovery of evidence and to potentially work out a deal.

Deputies removed more than 60 animals from her home in May.
