Animal hoarder arrested again with additional charges

LIGHTHOUSE POINT, Fla. (WSVN) – An accused animal hoarder faced a judge, Tuesday.

Linda Giaccio pleaded not guilty after she was re-arrested over the weekend when the state attorney tacked 60 new charges onto her case.

Authorities found 70 cats and dogs, some dead in their own waste, in her Lighthouse Point home back in September.

Giaccio said she was simply feeding the animals.
