Andrei James Challenger and James Rolin Challenger, two men charged in an animal cruelty case involving a dog named Dora that suffered extensive burns, had their trial date put off Monday for the second time.

The two men will be back in court for a case management hearing on Nov. 29.

They were originally slated to stand trial in March, but the date was pushed back. Monday was expected to be their new trial date, but a number of witnesses in the trial did not show up at court.

The Crown counsel and defense attorneys spoke about which witnesses would be needed for trial, and Magistrate Angelyn Hernandez gave the Crown time to properly coordinate with its witnesses.
