Fatal Pit Bull Attack
TOWN OF WALWORTH, Wis. (AP) – The Walworth County sheriff’s office says no charges are expected in a pit bull attack that killed a young boy earlier this month. Sheriff’s Capt. Dana Nigbor (NIHG’-bohr) tells The Janesville Gazette (http://bit.ly/11aw4Eg) she does not anticipate any criminal charges being filed in the mauling. The district attorney’s office will make a final charging decision. District Attorney Daniel Necci said Friday it was too soon to tell if his office would file charges. Fourteen-month-old Daxton Borchardt was at his baby sitter’s home in the Town of Walworth March 6 when the two were attacked by the woman’s pit bulls. The boy was pronounced dead a few hours later. Funeral services for Dax, as the boy was called, were held last Tuesday in Williams Bay. The two pit bulls were euthanized.
