Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A Nevada Supreme Court panel says that it will not intervene in the case of the family dog that killed a one-year-old boy in Henderson.
A Las Vegas judge is expected to make a decision about the dog's fate some time this week.
Onion killed a one-year-old boy on his birthday on April 27.
After the attack, the dog was turned over to Henderson Animal Control. He was scheduled to euthanized when a rescue group based in New York took interest in his fate.
The rescue group found a sanctuary in Colorado that agreed to take the dog in. Since then, several motions have been filed in the case to delay the execution of the dog.
Clark County District Court Judge Joanna Kishner said last week that she would issue a written decision some time this week on the fate of the dog.
The Nevada Supreme Court panel said they will not intervene because the animal rescue group has failed to show that state appellate court intervention is warranted.
