TOWN OF WALWORTH, Wis. -

The Walworth County Sheriff's Office said no charges are expected in a pit bull attack that killed a young boy earlier this month.

Sheriff's Capt. Dana Nigbor told the Janesville Gazette 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.
