The woman accused of pretending to be a veterinarian now has a trial date set.
Brandi Tomko will be standing trial September 11 according to News Channel 5 after her hearing Monday morning in which 5 additional counts were added to her 33-count indictment on various animal cruelty and other charges.
Tomko is accused of treating and operating on animals at the now-closed C&D Animal Hospital in Akron.
Both Bob McGee and Kenny Reymann were in the courtroom during the hearing and tell the news organization it was difficult for them to be in the same room with the woman who they say had a hand in their pets' demise.
McGee's dog Allie was a service dog for the injured Gulf War veteran. He came forward after Reymann told the story of his dog Charlie's death with the media earlier in the year.
Tomko has pleaded not guilty to all charges and is currently out on bond.
