WALWORTH COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - Sheriff’s deputies in far southern Wisconsin are almost finished investigating an attack by two pit bulls that killed a 14-year-old boy almost two weeks ago.

Walworth County sheriff’s captain Dana Nigbor says she does not expect criminal charges in the mauling of Daxton Borchardt.

The district attorney’s office will have the final say on charges – and DA Daniel Necci says it’s too soon to tell what his office might do.

Daxton was at a babysitter’s house near Walworth on March 6th when both the child and the female babysitter were attacked by a pair of pit bulls.

The 30-year-old woman owned the dogs, which were euthanized soon after the incident. The woman survived.
