LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Nevada judge plans to issue a written decision next week on the fate of a dog that killed a toddler at home in Henderson.

Clark County District Court Judge Joanna Kishner released a statement Friday saying she reviewed all the arguments by city attorneys and lawyers for a New York-based animal rescue group that wants to send the animal to a sanctuary outside Denver.

The judge says she didn't meet in person with lawyers for either side.

That's because the parties didn't follow proper procedures. No final order has been signed since her May 11 ruling giving Henderson city officials the go-ahead to euthanize the animal as vicious.

The Lexus Project wants the judge to reconsider and let it take possession of the 6-year-old mastiff-Rhodesian ridgeback mix, named Onion.
