Nev. High Court Orders Stay in Dog Euthanasia Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Nevada Supreme Court panel says no action can be taken to euthanize a dog that killed a toddler in Henderson -- at least until justices rule on a New York-based animal rescue group's appeal.

A trio of justices split 2-1, but issued an indefinite stay Friday on an appeal filed by the Lexus Project.

The group wants to send the 120-pound mastiff-Rhodesian mixed breed named Onion to a sanctuary in Colorado.

Clark County District Court Judge Joanna Kishner ruled Thursday the dog's owner legally gave the dog up for quarantine and euthanasia after it killed her grandson April 27. The judge says the Lexus Project lacks legal standing to intervene.

Lexus Project attorneys argue the dog isn't vicious and was provoked before biting the child.

Family Holds Vigil for Man Found Strangled

Family Holds Vigil for Man Found Strangled

HENDERSON -- The family of a Henderson man who was strangled to death held a vigil for him Sunday.

David Hudson's family says, despite the history of domestic violence between David and his girlfriend, he didn't deserve to die. Police say David's estranged girlfriend strangled him after she claims he beat and choked her. The Hudson family is demanding justice in the case. Hudson's family says the violence went both ways.

At the vigil Sunday night, family members say they will remember David for his sense of humor and his love for others.

"No one should have done this to him, he didn't deserve this. He just didn't deserve this," said David's mother Katherine Alexander.

A lot of hugs and a lot of tears were shared at a candlelight vigil for a man known by his family as Davey.

Speeding Motorcyclist Hits Car, Dies in Henderson

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Henderson police say a 20-year-old motorcyclist was driving more than 100 mph when he rear-ended another vehicle and was killed.

Police spokesman Keith Paul says an officer tried to pull over two motorcyclists who were speeding a little after 3 a.m. Wednesday. Authorities say the motorcyclists sped away and the officer abandoned the chase.

Police say one of the motorcyclists started running red lights at a high speed and eventually struck the back of a Honda Accord on Boulder Highway near Lake Mead Parkway.

The man was thrown off the motorcycle and the bike caught fire. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 61-year-old driver of the rear-ended vehicle was treated and released from the hospital.

The Clark County Coroner has not released the victim's identity.

 

Justices Won't Intervene on Fate of Killer Dog

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A Nevada Supreme Court panel won't intervene while a judge in Las Vegas decides the fate of a dog that killed a one year old at a Henderson home.

A trio of justices issued an order Thursday saying a New York-based animal rescue group failed to show state appellate court intervention is warranted.

The Lexus Project Inc. wants to take the 120-pound mastiff-Rhodesian mixed breed, named Onion, and send it to a sanctuary in Colorado.

Clark County District Court Joanna Kishner said last Friday she'll issue a written decision this week on the group's request to reconsider giving Henderson city officials the go-ahead to euthanize the animal as vicious.

Lexus Project lawyers say the boy's grandmother turned the dog over to Henderson animal control officials by mistake after the April 27 attack.
