Shelter trial delayed

By jim Published: January 13, 2010

AKRON: The trial for two Akron animal shelter leaders charged with animal cruelty will be rescheduled.

Proceedings for Heaven Can Wait founders Heather Nagel and her mother, Patricia Mihaly, were to begin Tuesday morning in Akron Municipal Court.

A new trial date was not immediately set.

Mihaly and Nagel are charged with 15 counts of animal cruelty. In July, authorities removed more than 100 dogs and cats from a home the group uses on Vesper Street in Akron.

The women have pleaded not guilty.
