A trial has been scheduled for the week of Jan. 22 in Kenai District Court for a woman charged with nine counts of animal cruelty.
Judge Jonathan H. Link granted a request to postpone the trial call, which had been scheduled for Nov. 25.
Carolyn F. Boughton, 57, was charged after Alaska State Troopers allegedly found 66 filthy and underfed dogs under Boughton's care in Sterling in November 2001.
Boughton reportedly was living in Nikiski and commuting to Sterling to feed and provide water for the dogs.
According to court documents, some of the dogs were found dead, some in need of immediate medical care and some had to be put to death.
Troopers seized the dogs.
